Kristin Saady - Assistant Principal

I am honored to return to Reams for my fifth year serving as the assistant principal and associate principal. Prior to being in this position, I enjoyed being an administrator at the middle school level. I have also taught Kindergarten, first, second, and third grades, all in Chesterfield County.
I grew up in the Midlothian area and love calling RVA home! I attended Longwood University for my undergrad degree in Elementary Education and Regent University for a Master’s in Educational Leadership.

My husband and I stay busy with our daughters, Caroline and Eva, along with our two goldendoodles, Milly and Casey. We also have two cats, Lily and Henrietta as well as many fish in our fish pond! We enjoy spending time at the beach, eating out, and hanging out with our family and friends.
Teaching has always been my passion and I am fortunate to be able to work in a place with amazing students and people each day. I look forward to watching our Rams grow this year as we remember to Work Hard. Be Kind. #inspiredREAMS!

Looking forward to an incredible year!

Bernard Burwell - Dean of Students

Hello, Hola, Bonjour, Guten tag, and Ni hao,

I am honored to serve as the Dean of Students for The Reams Road Elementary. I am confident that with our excellent students, exemplary staff, and collaborative school community we will succeed beyond measures! In 2015 I graduated from Randolph Macon College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Upon completion of my Bachelor of Arts degree, I served as a special education teacher and leader in CCPS for five years. My special education classrooms encompassed many different abilities and ranged from ESCE-5th grade levels. In 2019, I decided to take the leap to administration. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Education degree in Supervision & Administration from the University of Virginia and will graduate in Summer 2021. I plan to grow with YOU throughout our continued journey to Rams success!

As a child of a military family, I grew up in New York, Virginia, Germany, and many other countries.  This experience has allowed me to appreciate the differences in EACH community, EVERY family, and ALL students. I enjoy reading books ranging from Harry Potter to Pete the Cat! In addition to reading an amazing book, you may find me spending time with my family, exercising or cheering on my favorite teams. Go Yellow Jackets!, Go Cavaliers! Go Lakers! More importantly, you will always find me cheering on the success of OUR Reams Rams!
