Hello! My name is Kristen Savage and this year will be my first year as a Frederick Douglass star. 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 exercising, reading, and going on long walks with my husband and our dog, Coco. Although this school year is starting differently than most, I am very much looking forward to adapting to the circumstances and giving your child a wonderful first grade experience. I can’t wait for a great school year in first grade! 😊
