Lynn Mallon - PTO President

Hi! My name is Lynn. This is my second year on the PTO board, but I have been a grade level PTO representative for the past 4 years. This is my sixth year as a 5th grade teacher at Glenkirk, and I have a fifth grader in Mrs. Davis's and Mrs. Tracy's classes. I have a BS in Elementary Education and am working toward my MS in Curriculum and Instruction. I am also the sponsor for our Golden Knights Green Team. I love being involved in many aspects of the school because I know that when teachers, school staff, administrators, and parents work together, we create a magnificent school climate that fosters positive experiences and growth of our children, both academically and personally. My hope is to have increased family involvement with the PTO so we may continue to strengthen and enhance our support of our wonderful Glenkirk community.

Hi! My name is Jen Oister.  My husband and I grew up in Miami, FL and moved to VA 11 years ago.  We have 2 Golden Knights, 3rd and 2nd grades, and I am a stay-at-home-mom with 2 more future Knights. I have a BS in Accounting and Real Estate from Florida State University, and worked in the mortgage industry for 6 years before "mom-tiring".  I love crafting and baking whenever I have time.  This is my second year serving on the PTO board and I enjoy working with other parent volunteers and the amazing staff to foster the incredible sense of community and caring that makes Glenkirk the best school! Go Golden Knights!!!

My name is Crystal Perseo and I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve on the PTO Board as Vice Treasurer. This year I’m extremely lucky to have all three of my girls at Glenkirk. Charlotte will be in 5th grade, Isabella 3rd grade, and Liliana is entering kindergarten.
I graduated from Radford University with a Bachelors of Science in Art Education. I taught art at the elementary level for the past twenty years. Currently, I am attending Liberty University online full time and will be graduating with my Masters degree in 2020.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to be a part of a PTO that supports our children and school staff.

Kristen GustafsonKristen Gustafson - PTO Secretary

Hi!  My name is Kristen, and I am happy to serve as PTO Secretary this year!  I am a former teacher with a BA in Elementary Education and an MA in Educational Leadership.  Now that I am a stay-at-home mom, I still passionately believe a strong home-school connection is important to student success.  My daughter is in first grade, and my son is a toddler.  I am the newbie on the PTO board and hope I can encourage other parents to be involved and help Glenkirk remain a wonderful school!
