Mrs. Kristin Mallory
Welcome Bulldogs!! I am proud to say that I am an OG (that's orginal in kid terms!) Bulldog Over these 20+ years I have seen SW transition from a Junior High to a Middle School, saying goodbye to 9th graders and welcoming 6th graders to our building. I love being a BULLDOG, the faculty and staff that I serve with, the athletes that I coach, and the students that I teach. Southwest truly is my home.
In my 20+ years in this district I have taught physical education, and I enjoy being active with my classes. I was honored to recieve the 2016 Lawrence School District Teacher of the Year Award. I have also coached 8th (and 9th) grade volleyball, 8th (and 9th) grade basketball, boys and girls tennis, boys and girls track, and was the Varsity Girls Basketball Coach at Lawrence High for 8 seasons. In 2008 our team was fortunate enough to win the 6A State Championship and the following season I was honored with my 100th high school coaching win. Coaching is a HUGE part of who I am and I love the relationships that I can build in working with my student/athletes away from the classroom.
On a personal level, I have been married to Mike Mallory for over 20 years and we have been blessed with 3 beautiful children. Jackson is currently attending Ottawa University (and playing basketball), Peyton is attending Lawrence High School, and Madiyn is next door at Sunflower Elementary. In my spare time I enjoy watching and coaching my kids' activities and supporting the Kansas Jayhawks.
Here's to another great school year!
