Ms. Kristin Williams
Hello! My name is Ms. Williams! This will be my first year teaching at Glenridge Elementary but my seventh year teaching and I am excited to begin this new journey. Teaching lower elementary is my passion because that is the prime time for children to be molded and shaped into innovative leaders of the future. As an educator it is my mission to uplift, encourage, nurture, and prepare students academically, socially, and emotionally for successful living.
I grew up here in St. Louis, MO where I attended Cardinal Ritter College Prep High School and spent much of my time dancing at COCA (Center of Creative Arts) and volunteering with my church and my sorority. When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with my dog Nellie as well as family and friends. In my spare time I also enjoy working out, reading, and cooking.
Working with children has always been my passion, although I never thought I would become a teacher. I attended Missouri Baptist University with aspirations to become an accountant and received my Bachelors degree in Business Administration and Accounting. Post graduation I began working in the business field and quickly realized it was not for me. I swiftly returned to school and obtained a post-baccalaureate degree in Early Childhood Education as well as a Master of Educational Administration with Principal certification K-8 so that one day I can have an even greater impact on leading young children to be successful.
I am excited for this year at Glenridge Elementary and to create a caring classroom community, full of wonderful and fun-filled learning! I can’t wait to spend the year learning and growing with you!
