Hello! My name is Kristen Wooldridge. I am excited to be your child's first grade teacher here at Highland Elementary! This is my 12th year teaching. I have taught Kindergarten and First grade. I can't wait to see what this year holds for us in the Jazzy Jungle class!
I am originally from Ohio and moved to North Carolina after completing my Bachelor's Degree for a teaching position. After moving here, I met my husband and we have two boys. One is six and is part of the pirate family too. Our second son Liam is a wild 18 months old. We are a military family like many families in this area and enjoy assisting in community and church events.
I received my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Youngstown State University in 2008 and my Master degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Gardner-Webb University in 2016. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, and eating sushi!
I look forward to working with our Pirate families to help all students succeed!
