Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kristen Klumb
My name is Kristen Klumb, and I am so excited to be your child's fourth grade teacher this year! This is my eighth year teaching in the Parkway School District, and my seventh year teaching at McKelvey Elementary. I have always taught either 4th or 5th grade, and I am looking forward to another exciting year of learning and fun!
I grew up in St. Louis and am the youngest of four children. I graduated from Maryville University in 2010 with a degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Mathematics. I have also completed my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. My husband and I live in Kirkwood with our daughter, Emerson, and dog, Walter, and we are expecting second child January! In my free time I enjoy traveling, reading, exercising, and spending time with family and friends.
I believe consistent communication between home and school is of vital importance in your child's academic success. Please do not ever hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. You can contact me by phone, email, or Class DOJO. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year!
In the event of an emergency or change in your child's dismissal plans, please email or call me before 2:30. If you have not received a reply from me by 2:30, please follow up with a phone call to the main office to ensure your child gets home safely. We ask that changes to transportation after 2:30 are not made unless it is an absolute emergency.
