Our Principal

Dear Riverdale Families,

Welcome to Riverdale Elementary!  It is an honor and privilege to be serving the Riverdale community as your principal for the fifth year,  and I look forward to meeting all of our families and getting to know every one of our fabulous scholars! Whether you have been a member of our community for several years, or are new to Riverdale this year, I believe you will find our school to be a warm and inviting place to all who enter.

My journey as an educator began twenty-eight years ago when I accepted my first teaching position in my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.  Since that time I have taught grades Kindergarten through fourth, and have served students as a classroom teacher, an instructional coach, an Assistant Principal, and a Principal.

My greatest passion is to work with staff and families as a team to ensure the best educational experience possible for our scholars.  I'd like to encourage you to stop by for a visit, sign up to volunteer, or contact us any time with questions, comments, ideas, or compliments.  I look forward to serving our scholars and working with you all!

Kind Regards,

Kristin Golden
