Meet the Principal

Ms. Hyde, Principal

Hello and welcome! My name is Kristen Hyde and I am the proud principal of Bergen Elementary. I am thrilled to begin my sixth year at our wonderful school and my 29th year as an educator!

I am inspired and driven by our school’s mission statement: At Bergen Elementary, we educate and empower the whole child for success. We work daily to help our students to be successful both in school and beyond, providing them with academically rigorous content and focusing on whole child support.

My personal mission as a school leader, and as a human, is to allow others to be seen, heard, and valued. I work daily to cultivate connections with others, draw on their strengths, and empower them to do amazing things. My values of growth and hope guide me daily in my work as a school leader. I believe in continuous improvement and the relentless drive for progress - that each day is an opportunity to learn something new and be better than we were yesterday. I also have great hope for the future that we will be handing over to our children, and that it is our responsibility to prepare them for life outside of school and how to be successful, caring human beings.

I am so proud to lead our school, which is a place where our students are safe and thriving, where our kids and staff love coming to school, and where our community is welcomed and supported.

I live here in Evergreen and am honored to serve our community. In my free time I love to spend as much time as possible outdoors: running, rock climbing, camping, and just being outside in our beautiful state with my husband and our dog.

If I have not yet met you, please stop by to introduce yourself. I am looking forward to a great year together.

In partnership,

Kristen Hyde
