Dear Student and Family,
Hello and welcome to Rowan County Middle School! My name is Kristen Hood and I will be your students’ homeroom/social studies teacher this year! I am originally from Lancaster, KY and graduated from Garrard County High School in 2003. I graduated from Morehead State University in May of 2008. I have a bachelor’s degree in Middle Grades Education, (5-9) with components in Science and Social Studies. In addition, I also have a Master’s Degree and Certification in Elementary Education (P-5) and a Rank I in administration. This is my 13th year teaching at RCMS and my seventh year teaching 8th grade. In addition to teaching, I am an advisor for the RCMS CO-ED Y Club and coordinator for the 8th grade Washington DC trip. I am looking forward to this academic year and having your student in class.
