Kristen Patterson Bio

My name is Kristen Patterson, and I am the Assistant Principal at Reuben Johnson Elementary.  My family moved to McKinney in 2012 and my husband also teaches in MISD.  We have two vibrant daughters that keep us busy, and when we have free time we spend it in our camper, enjoying the outdoors and checking off different states to visit.  I am a proud member of Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of ’02 and attended Texas A & M at both the College Station and Galveston campuses for my bachelor’s degree.  I earned by master’s degree in Education Administration from Concordia University.  I am starting my 15th year in education, and served as a Teacher, Instructional Coach, Curriculum Specialist, and Administrator before coming to RJE.  My personal hobbies include reading, dancing, listening to music, and eating tacos.  I find working with students and teachers truly inspiring and energizing, and I cannot imagine doing anything else.
