Kristi Byrne – William R. Fort Elementary

Kristi is an experienced teacher with 22 years of elementary experience.  She is outstanding in the classroom and was named Fort Teacher of the Year in 2007 and again in 2015.

The most important thing to Kristi is building a relationship with her students.  Kristi shares, “I speak to each child as they enter my classroom every morning.  I want my students to know they are loved and to never be afraid to try something new.  Some of our best learning experiences can come from making mistakes, and are often remembered the most.”  Kristi works each year to add new ideas and strategies to her lessons, always looking for ways to motivate her students.

Principal Dodson wrote, “Teaching students to read is clearly a passion for Kristi. She understands that reading is the foundation for all other learning.  Her goal is to make strong readers of all her students.”
