Mrs. Kristin Gagliardi
My name is Kristin Gagliardi and this is my 18th year teaching. I graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and later received my Masters in Elementary Education with a focus in reading and literacy. I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grades.
I am married to Anthony Gagliardi, a professional bass fisherman on the Major League Fishing Tour. He is also a proud graduate of Clemson University!
I have two children, a daughter and a son. Laken is 11 and Cruz is 9. We also have a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Kira and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Chase. In addition to our dogs, we have the sweetest outdoor cat named Meow, and a bearded dragon named Lizzie.
I love to go out on the boat, play with my children, read, travel, be at the ocean, and go to Clemson football games. I adore teaching and love being part of the OPES family! As you will learn, my school babies are a huge part of my life and I love them like I do my own children. I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach your child!
