Kindergarten Endorsement 2012


     Hello, my name is Kristi Higham.  I currently teach 2nd grade.  I am beginning my 20th year of teaching this school year.   I earned my B.S. in Elementary Education along with a Computer Literacy endorsement in December 2000 from Indiana State University.  In August 2001, I began teaching at Shelburn Elementary, where I continued teaching until August 2005.  At that time, I joined the staff at Davis Park.  I spent 9 years at Davis Park before coming to Riley in 2014.  In addition, I earned my Master’s degree in 2005 from Indiana State University, as well as my Kindergarten Endorsement in 2012.

       I am very excited to continue teaching at Riley this school year! I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
