My name is Kristy Luxton, and I am excited to return to administration as the Academic Dean at Hillside. I am looking forward to getting to know the students and families I will be serving. I have spent the last 6+ years teaching first and third grade at Little River Elementary. I have been an educator for over 19 years. I have taught in Connecticut and Virginia in K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade levels. Additionally, I served as an assistant principal in Loudoun County before taking time off to be home with my children. I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in Elementary Education at the University of Connecticut. Additionally, I earned an Education Specialist degree from the University of Virginia in Administration and Supervision.
Outside of school, you will likely find me at a football field, basketball court, or at the theater. My twins are now 8th graders, and we keep very busy with sports and activities. Our sweet dogs, Sophie and Poppy, also keep us on our toes with their silly capers.
My goal is to do all I can to support our students and staff to reach their greatest potential.
