Superintendent Danny Adkins announces Kristin Garrett and Tessica Strong will now serve in the roles of Instructional Consultants for Floyd County Schools.


Adkins comments, “Kristin and Tessica have been tremendous assets in the classroom and at their schools. These women will now be able to support our schools with their Multi-Tiered Support Systems (MTSS). They will assist in designing and implementing these systems and will be there to support our schools.”


Inspired by her parents who were educators, Kristin Garrett chose teaching as her career. She graduated from Morehead State University and returned to Floyd County where she has been teaching over twenty years. In 2018, she became a National Board Certified Teacher. Over the years, Kristin has served in several roles beyond the classroom. She has been a member of the school council, the Local Planning Committee (LPC), the Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction (CIA) team, the leadership academy and the Kentucky Reading Project. Kristin has also been a mentor for new teachers. Her goal is to work with school leaders and teachers to continue to develop and deliver individualized instruction to address the needs of all students. Kristin and her husband David live in Banner with their son Nick and daughter Allison.


Tessica Strong is an 18-year veteran in education. She graduated from Alice Lloyd College, taught algebra and then became a media specialist. Tessica has served on the school council and coordinated several writing programs in addition to helping write grants and being the School Literacy Coordinator. Tessica finds inspiration in her seeing students succeed and she strives to help all students find the right pathway toward success. Tessica and her husband Eric live in Langley with their boys, Max and Eli.


“We’re excited for Kristin and Tessica to work at the district level serving our schools. These two have a passion for reaching all students that is contagious. I’m confident they will support and assist our schools in any way they can to help us meet the needs of our students.” Adkins concluded.
