All About Mrs. Zimmerman




Hello!  My name is Kristie Zimmerman. This will be my 16th year teaching first grade and my 15th year teaching at Locust Grove. I love teaching and being able to see how much the students grow during the year. Here is some information about myself.


I was born and raised in Muddy Creek Forks. I attended Kennard-Dale High School and graduated in the year 2000. After high school, I attended Penn State University and graduated in May of 2004. Once I received a teaching job, I returned to Penn State to receive my master’s degree in Teaching and Curriculum, which I received in the year 2009.


Currently, I reside in Muddy Creek Forks with my husband, Josh, our 8 year old daughter, Kaylee, our soon to be 5 year old daughter, Addison and our soon to be 12 year old chocolate lab, Guinness. I also have an older brother, Dustin, a younger sister, Ashley, and 3 nephews. Dylan is 16 years old, Kolby will be 11 years old in September and Beckham will be 4 in November.


Kaylee loves swimming, playing basketball, softball and soccer, doing gymnastics and Barbies. She will be in third grade this year and she's very excited! Addison enjoys pre-school, doing gymnastics at Shrewsbury Gymnastics, dancing and singing. She also enjoys swinging, riding a bike and reading books. She is very excited to go back to preschool this year with her friends. This summer we spent a lot of time swimming, reading, riding bikes and we went to Raystown Lake for the first time with friends.
