Mrs. Kristy Grimes

Hello Eastridge Elementary Community,

I will be your child's 3rd grade teacher. This year, I will be self-contained and will teach all contents/subjects (ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies.) I was raised in a small town in Ellis County called Ennis, Texas.  I currently live in DeSoto, Texas with my two kids, Landon and Kenya. I graduated from Texas A&M University-Commerce with my Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies and earned my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Triple Literacy. 

This will be my 17th year in education. I have spent 15 years teaching in DeSoto ISD. I previously taught 4th grade for twelve years and I’ve taught three years in 3rd grade in the past.  This will be my second year at Red Oak ISD. 

In my spare time, I love to travel and be with my family. I'm excited about learning and growing with you all as we embark on this upcoming school year.
