Welcome to 6th Grade Reading! My name is Kristen Haynes and I am so excited for this school year. This is my 11th year in education. I grew up in East Texas, received a B.S. in Education from The University of Mary-Hardin Baylor and a M. ED in Educational Leadership from Stephen F. Austin University. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 12 years and we have 2 little boys. My husband, Josh, is a firefighter in Kilgore, Lawson is in 3rd Grade and Landry is three years old.
