Mrs. Krista Watson

My name is Krista Watson and this is my 23rd year of teaching. After growing up in New York, I came to Virginia to attend college at Mary Washington. After earning two Bachelor degrees (one in International Affairs/Political Science, the other in Child Development), I began my teaching career in the City of Fredericksburg. I started working in Stafford County Public Schools at Winding Creek Elementary in 2002. There I was a Kindergarten teacher and eventually became the Reading Specialist. In 2011, I came to Margaret Brent to be the Reading Specialist and eventually returned to the classroom to teach Kindergarten.

I also have a Master's Degree from George Mason University in Curriculum Development with a concentration in literacy. I currently hold a teaching license in the Commonwealth of Virginia with endorsements in Elementary Education PK-6, History and Social Sciences and Reading Specialist PK-12. I am also pursuing certification to be a Dyslexia Specialist.

I have been married for 25 years to my husband Russ and we have 3 sons; Hunter (22), Andrew (18) and Cole (12).
