Kirstie graduated From TCU in 2012 with a Bachelors in Child development but life led her on another path for a few years. She received her CNA certification in 2013 and had been working in the hospitals until she decided to start substituting in 2016. She found out she had a passion for teaching and loved working with the special needs population so she started the path to getting her teaching certification. She is extremely happy to be here and believes that her medical background makes her the perfect fit to work with the population of students here at Jo Kelly and she plans to be here for many years to come. When Kirstie is not here at school she is a wife and mom to three great kiddos and enjoys spending as much time as she can with her family.   
 
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
