Hello! My name is Kristin Firkins and I am so excited to start my 17th year teaching! I started my education all the way up in Buffalo, NY where I was born and raised. I went to the State University of New York at Fredonia and received my Bachelor's degree in Childhood Education. About a year later, I moved to Virginia Beach and taught 3rd grade for 3 years in Norfolk Public Schools. When I moved to Texas, I taught 1st grade for one year in Round Rock and I fell in love with the primary grades and the amount of progress that they are capable of showing through the school year! In my spare time I like to play and hang out with my family. My 13 year old daughter Mikayla, 8 year old daughter Taylor, and my 6 year old daughter Chloe are very important to me and I value family above everything else. I enjoy doing anything crafty and being at school with my wonderful students & kindergarten team. Thank you so much for allowing me to teach and guide your children through their first year at Ford Elementary!  It will be wonderful...I promise!
