Hello, my name is Kristy McGovern.  I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  I have been teaching elementary education for 15 years.  I have been at Polenta Elementary for 12 years, where I have taught 1st and 2nd grade.  I taught 1st grade for five years and this upcoming year will be my seventh year in 2nd grade. I have 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 3 months to 6 years old.
