Mrs. Kristina Christian

Greetings Tigers!

My name is Kristina Christian, and I am the proud new principal of Edison Elementary School! I have a Master’s in Educational Leadership with an administrative certification and 19 years of teaching experience. During my experience as a teacher and an assistant principal, I have established positive effective relationships with students, parents, and staff. I see myself as a lifelong learner, with a growth mind set, and a positive attitude. I am looking forward to bringing all my years of experience and a desire to learn and grow to our Edison Elementary community.

I am enthusiastic about supporting our Edison students as principal. It is my goal to continue to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where students can thrive and have fun. I know that with imaginative thinking, efficient action, and a commitment to quality performance, students at Edison Elementary will continue to thrive towards excellence. It is my goal to not only be an exceptional administrator, but also to encourage the best in our students and staff. I believe the relationship between school and home is crucial for students’ academic success. The key to building and nurturing supportive relationships between home and school is effective communication. I am excited about the opportunity to work with all of you as we work together to build life-long learners.

I welcome the opportunity to meet with you at any time. If you ever need my assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at kristina.christian@detroitk12.org or 313-852-1066. I have an open-door policy and will always make time to discuss important school matters. I look forward to working with you. Take care.
