Kristi Whitaker-Krile

My name is Kristi Whitaker-Krile. I am a teacher at Logan Elementary School in Ann Arbor, MI.   I consider it a pleasure and my life's work to enable every child under my care to exceed their own expectations.

I have a B.S. in Education, and a Masters Degree in Reading and Literacy.  My kids learn to read so they may read to learn.

Please feel free to contact me -

Welcome to 2016/2017

We are kicking off a brand new year. Mrs. Rochell and I are looking forward to lots of learning and tons of fun!

Take a look at my Opening Letter. This should answer most (if not all) of your questions about first grade in Kriletown.


Fancy Nancy day

We had an absolutely divine day getting all decked out in our fanciest duds! The kids were spectacular and the teachers were not so bad themselves. Thanks everyone for snazzing up the 1st grade.

ipads are Here

Our classroom iPads have landed and we just can't wait to dig in to them.

One thing though - these things need power and there just aren't enough outlets in my room. Can one of my gracious Kriletown families look around for a powers trip you may not be using. We sure would appreciate it.



Kriletown 2016

Kriletown will be open for business at 8:53 am, Tuesday, September 8. I just can't WAIT to meet all my new Krile Kids.  Here's a sneak peek at our new home for the school year.

Doodle 4 Google

We are so proud of Logan's very own Google finalist. Take a second to vote for her in the National Finals!  

Kriletown Went Red!

Just a huge THANK YOU to all my students and parents that helped Kriletown go red last Friday.  This issue is so important to me and it makes my heart happy when everyone gathers around a really important cause.


“Like” to support the arts!

Vote for Logan to receive $3000 from Bank of Ann Arbor! 

The Bank of Ann Arbor is having a contest next week where schools who obtain the most votes will receive $3000 towards their arts and music programs.

Voters need to 'like' Bank of Ann Arbor on Facebook and can cast one vote each day.

We have made a basic event page here:

If every parent votes, we can drive these winnings straight home!

Who doesn't like being fancy!?


Our Kriletown Shirts are in the house and boy does this group look SHARP! 

Loving our Shirts!

Background Checks for Classroom Volunteers

I love nothing more than parents to spend time in Kriletown.  Your engagement is often the brightest memory in your kids' education.  However, we have some paperwork that MUST BE COMPLETED before I can welcome you in to the group.   ALL VOLUNTEERS must turn in the following form to me.

Curriculum Night Presentation

Some of you asked if I could put the presentation online from Curriculum night.  So, here ya go! 


I found this to be very inspiring.  As a mother, wife, and woman.
