Message from School Principal



Welcome!  My name is Kristen Risdal, and I am honored to be the principal of Abercrombie Academy.  I have had a lifelong passion for working with children.  After graduating with a degree in Education and specializing in Special Education, I first began teaching middle school and then elementary special education in the North Kansas City School District.  My family and I moved to Spring in January of 2001, and this area quickly became our home.

My husband David and I are very blessed to have three beautiful, though almost grown, children.  After staying home with the children for a few years, I found my way to Abercrombie Academy.  I have been a part of the Abercrombie Academy family for 12 years now, having taught preschool and kindergarten, as well as being in Early Childhood administration.

I am extremely fortunate to work with each of our highly qualified, nurturing teachers.  I believe that the caring for each student, academically, socially, and emotionally, is one of the several qualities that sets Abercrombie Academy apart.  We strive to help each child obtain success and to grow to become productive members of society.
