love Kristy Love joined Codwell Elementary School in 2013, following eleven years of service within the Houston Independent School District.  Prior to this position, she served as Dean of Students at Woodson K-8 Leadership Academy and Assistant Principal at Burbank Middle School.  Ms. Love started her teaching career as a science teacher at Hogg Middle School where she was Team Leader and Science Department Chair.  At Hogg she was also rewarded Teacher of the Year.  Ms. Love also served as a resident teacher in the Rice Model Science Lab at Lanier Middle School.
