My name is Kristin Dye. I am so glad to be joined in the classroom by two outstanding paraprofessionals: Mrs. Wendy Langdon and Mr. Chuck Smith. Both are compassionate, creative, and hard-working educators that bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the classroom!
I've worked in the district since 2002 and have been a paraprofessional, a special education teacher, and a special education process coordinator. I am originally from a suburb of Kansas City and attended the University of Kansas, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work. I attended Missouri State University for my Master's Degree in Special Education, as well as my certifications as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired and Certified Orientation & Mobility Specialist.
My husband, Jon, is a graduate of WHS and teaches Culinary Arts at Waynesville Career Center. Our son is in fourth grade at Freedom Elementary. We also have a beautiful 2-year-old daughter. Our children will be 5th generation Waynesville High School graduates! We have 2 dogs and love going for walks, watching and playing sports, traveling, and spending time together as a family.
I love teaching and am looking forward to a wonderful, productive, and fun-filled year! I value communication with parents and welcome phone calls and emails any time!
