Ms. Krista Strowd
My name is Krista Strowd, better known as Ms. S to my students. I have the honor of teaching your children 5th grade this year in all subject areas. I am sure you would appreciate knowing a little background information about myself. I recently graduated from University of Houston main campus August 2021 obtaining a degree in general education. This will be officially my first-year teaching. Austin Parkway (APE) is now my second family when I am not with my own. At home, I have 2 highly energic boys (12 and 7 years old) who are actively involved in sports. My youngest attends APE as well. We are basketball fans! My oldest is also getting into football this year. When I am not at work, my children and I like to be outdoors (when it is not ridiculously hot) doing all kinds of activities from fishing to swimming at the local pool.
We were a military family who moved back home about 4 years ago after many years of traveling. It was time to settle down and pursue a career in my passion, teaching. I am super ecstatic to embrace all aspects of teaching this year. I plan on absorbing as much information as I can that will contribute to the personal growth I desire as a teacher. Thank you for putting your trust into me with your children. I aim to strive daily to be the best possible teacher and role model that I know how to be.
May we have a fabulous 2021-2022 school year!
