My name is Kristy Luxton, and I am excited to return as the Academic Dean at Hillside. I enjoy working with the students and families we serve at Hillside. I have spent the last 6+ years teaching first and third grade at Little River Elementary. I have been an educator for over 20 years. I have taught in Connecticut and Virginia in K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade levels. 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.
