Kristi Gardner Bio

Hello Reuben Johnson Elementary. My name is Kristi Gardner, and I am very excited to join the Jaguar family. I was born and raised in Mesquite, Texas and moved to McKinney in 2002. I have been with McKinney ISD since 2010, First as a parent, volunteer and PTA mom, then as a substitute teacher and PE assistant at Vega Elementary.   I have two kids, Presley and Preston, both attend school in McKinney ISD. I have a wonderful husband and 3 crazy dogs. My daughter dances competitively so most of my free time is spent at the dance studio. If I do get free time, I enjoy shopping and reading. I am so happy to join RJE’s front office team and look forward to a great school year. Go Jaguars!
