• Hello! My name is Kristen Savage and this year will be my sixth year teaching first grade. I am so looking forward to getting to know my new students, and working together with their families to make this year a great one.

    I graduated from Christopher Newport University with my Masters in Elementary Education in 2017. I then taught first grade for three years with Newport News Public Schools. I am so happy that I was given the opportunity to continue teaching first grade at Frederick Douglass!

    In my spare time, I love spending time with family and friends, reading, and going on walks with my husband and our dog, Coco.  I am very much looking forward to working with families to give their child a wonderful first grade experience. I can’t wait for a great school year in first grade!
