Ms. Kristy McGovern

Hello my name is Kristy McGovern.  I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a degree in Elementary Education.  I have been teaching elementary education for 13 years.  I have been at Polenta Elementary for 10 years, where I have taught 1st and 2nd grade.  I taught 1st grade for five years and this upcoming year will be my fifth year in 2nd grade. This year I will be teaching my class virtual!  I am very excited about this upcoming year and the new adventures we will have! 

My favorite drink is Propel Water. I love Peach or the new Vitamin Boost Propel Apple Pear flavor.

My favorite snacks are the carmel/cheddar popcorn (by smartfood), dried fruit, and turkey jerky. 

My classroom wish list includes: Felt Tip Pens, Permanent Markers (skinny), Sheet Protectors, Card Stock (any color).
