Kristen worked for me at Wells-Carey School. What ever position she held, she was a positive role model for kids. I want to send my deepest sympathys to her husband and family. There will be a huge hole not only in their lives, but the KCSD family as well.

CandleShe always had a smile when she met the kids in the morning before school. Also she understood that my grandson need extra help in school. The worl will always be a better place for the short time she was here.

Our hearts are hurting. The death of a great person should add life to those who they leave behind...Kirsten was a great person. There is no doubt she has added to the lives of everyone who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers could never be enough. She will never be forgotten.
