This year will start my 12th year in teaching. I started teaching in 2011 as an Inclusion Teacher at Paris ISD. From there, I went on to teach 4th grade ELAR and 5th grade Science. I then moved on to teach at Detroit ISD for 5 years where I taught 1st and 2nd self-contained and 4th Math. This will be my 4th year in Math Intervention at Chisum ISD. Math is my favorite subject and I love helping find a way to help all kids become successful.
My name is Kristen Cole. I married to my college sweetheart, Kacy Cole, in 2011. We have two beautiful children named Harper (9) and Drake (5). Both of them are at school with me this year and we are a proud Mustang family. We have two dogs, Sadie and Koa. We love to spend time outdoors, traveling, and camping.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy singing at church, spending time with family and friends, and spending time at the gym! Some of my favorite things are flamingos and the color pink!
