Mrs. Kristi Tragethon

Welcome to Mrs. Tragethon's 5th and 6th grade class webpage! Here's a little bit about me...

I am married to my best friend, going on our third year, and together we are raising a quirky, blended family where I get to be the stepmother to three beautiful kiddos, ages 7, 10, and 18, and a mother to the littlest Tragethon, who is about to turn one! I am a born and raised Okie and LOVE my Oklahoma Sooners--which is sometimes difficult during football season here in Texas. My heart is teaching, inspiring, and challening children to love learning. I am a life-long learner myself, a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma (Bachelors) and of the University of Missouri (Masters). I have a particular passion for students who struggle in school, mostly because I can relate to them as I also struggled. However, I was successful for many reasons, one of them being that I had amazing parents at home that taught me how to work hard and overcome obstacles, also I was blessed to have teachers who went above and beyond to help me succeed. I believe this is the reason why Special Education called me to a career in teaching. I am proud to say that I am a Special Education Teacher, and have taught Resource and Inclusion classes at Sablatura Middle School for over three years. Nothing is more rewarding than the smiles on my student's faces. 

Tell me and I forget.

Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn.
