Our Principal

KSteelyIt's an honor to serve as your principal this year!


I'm Kristin Steely, and this is my 13th year working at Elkhart I.S.D. and my fourth year as Principal of Elkhart Elementary.

My educational background includes an Associate's Degree from T.V.C.C. as an E.M.T.- Paramedic, a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from the University of Texas, and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Stephen F. Austin State University. I will always have a servant's heart and a love for teaching. Teaching is a noble profession that helps shape a student's future.

My husband, Chad, serves on our school board and works for Enforcer Educational Services. We have been together for 23 incredible years and could have never seen the many blessings bestowed upon us and those yet to come.

As a mother of two sons, Camden and Ashton, I try to explore new places and jump at the opportunity to travel anytime I am not at work. In past years, I have traveled with Elkhart High School students to Ireland! Being part of the Elkhart Independent School District is a new adventure each day. I'm also a member of the Downtown Rotary Club of Palestine and enjoy community service projects.


I look forward to working with your child another year and working together as part of the Elkhart team.
