Hello, my name is Kristen Mann. I was born and raised in Northport, Alabama. My husband and I have been married for 14 years and have a daughter, Ava Kate, who will be in 4th grade this year. I received my masters in speech language pathology in 1998. I have worked in the Tuscaloosa County School System for 18 years. Seventeen of those years were spent in various schools across Tuscaloosa County. I enjoy drawing and painting and making learning fun, playful, and exciting. I am so excited to be working at Lake View Elementary. I love to see children progress with learning new communication skills and articulation skills. My motto is : We all have something to say! and Practice makes perfect! I can't wait to begin this journey with your child!
