Mrs. Kristin Grider

My name is Kristin Grider.  I have been married for almost 13 years to my wonderful husband, Clayton.  We have two boys, Micah and Ben.   God has blessed me with a great family and wonderful teaching opportunities.  

I began my career in Scottsboro, Alabama teaching homebound and Spanish for kindergarten and first grade.  The next year, I was blessed with the opportunity to have my own classroom and fell in love with first grade.  Six years later, my family moved back to Florence where I continued my journey in first grade at Harlan Elementary School.  In 2016, I moved across the river and on to second grade at Highland Park Elementary.  It is such a JOY to be a part of the Muscle Shoals faMily.
