Hi! My name is Ms. Kristy Grimes! I will be your child’s 4th grade ELAR/SS teacher for the 2018-2019 school year! This will be my 13th year teaching at Frank D. Moates Elementary and I am excited to make this my best year yet!

In May of 2007, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Texas A&M University-Commerce.
In December 2017, I graduated from University of Texas-Arlington with a Master’s Degree in Curriculum & Instruction in Literacy. My certifications include EC-4th Generalist, Reading Specialist EC-12, Master Reading Teacher EC-12, and ESL (English as a Second Language) EC-12. 

In my spare time, I love to read and be with family! I am so excited to be your teacher.  Let's make this school year the best yet!

It is a strong suggestion that you purchase your child a planner to keep up with their assignments for the week.
