Mrs. Glagola

3 year old Lead Teacher (2 day) & Librarian

Mrs. Glagola


Cristy Glagola is the Lead Teacher for the 3 year old class (2 day) and the School Librarian.  She has been with Kids in Discovery since 2011.

She is also a former KIDS mom, as both of her children attended and graduated from Kids In Discovery.  Born and raised in Richmond, Cristy graduated from Midlothian High School and then went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Child Development from Meredith College in Raleigh, NC.

She taught public school for 8 years in grades 1, 3, 4, and middle school until her oldest son was born.  She has two sons, Jack (an 8th grader) and Henry (a 6th grader).  Her husband Mike, also a Richmond native, is an Engineering Consultant with Progressive Design, Inc.  She also has two new kittens named Smokey and Chester!

Aside from being a full-time mom, she loves to spend time with family and friends, travel (especially to the beach!), read, cook and bake and volunteer at her children’s school.


We believe in a balanced curriculum of play, creative art, music, outdoor play, conversation, story time, experimentation & exploration, dramatic play, and group activities.
