Kristie KempI was born and raised in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida and attended Public schools in Brevard County. Graduated from Satellite High School in June of 1985 and received both of my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Jacksonville University. My entire teaching career has been in Duval County Public Schools, 29 years. The majority of my teaching career was spent at Arlington Elementary as a Special Education teacher and Standards Coach. My first principal assignment was at San Mateo Elementary for seven years before moving to San Jose for 4 years. San Jose Elementary was a true and positive learning experience with the diverse ESOL population and Dual Language program. My latest assignment to Loretto Elementary has been a true joy. The best part of being a principal is watching students and teachers working and learning together.
