Kristy Gross began working for Garfield Re-2 to have the flexible hours and spend time with her family. She stayed for 17 years because she loves the work. Gross is who’s who in Garfield Re-2.

Seventeen years ago, she began working as a paraprofessional at the former Roy Moore Elementary school in Silt. Over the years, she picked up additional responsibilities and skills. She is now the financial secretary at Cactus Valley Elementary in Silt.

“I love book work,” Gross said while explaining the best part of her job. “I like it when I can balance accounts to the penny because I feel like I have accomplished something.”

When she is not at Cactus Valley, she is out camping and riding off-highway vehicles with her husband of 31 years, Scott. She has two children, both products of the Garfield Re-2 school system, Travis a mechanical engineer, and Rachel, the owner of Shear Intensity in Rifle.

Theresa Hamilton is the director of districtwide services for the Garfield School District Re-2, serving Rifle, Silt and New Castle. Contact her at 970-665-7621.
