Without question, Kristina Armstead is one of the most tireless educators at Midlothian Middle School. This powerhouse teacher has been educating young minds for more than 23 years, yet she still has a sparkle in her eye for each and every child she encounters. Kristina has the uncanny ability to foster positive relationships with almost every child she teaches and that investment in each child consistently yields positive results, especially in her classroom expectations. In addition, Kristina regularly works with students after school to bolster their academic areas of weakness, sponsors a club and — simply put — is an exceptional educator.
