Mrs. Kristen Ward


Welcome to a new school year. My name is Kristen Ward, and I am the Reading Specialist at Icicle River Middle School. I am here to assist students, families, and staff along their literacy paths.  I am thrilled to extend my support and enthusiasm to our mountain lion family. Please stop by at any time. I look forward to meeting everyone. The learning adventures begin here… 



Welcome to my brief introduction. I started working for the Cascade School District in 2007. I have taught sixth grade, seventh grade, and ninth grade English Language Arts. I also taught 6-12th grade English Language Learners.  While I love working with middle school students, I also love being outside. I look forward to sharing a great year with you.  Remember, pick up a good book... or an eReader!
