The Savvy Student is built around a core value that all students can achieve success when empowered and equipped with strategies to succeed. Many times, students struggle in several different areas at school. Therefore, our goal is to help students knock down each barrier that hinders them from achieving their full potential. Additionally,  The Savvy Student focuses how students learn best. We believe teaching 1 on 1 and delivering information through the student's learning style is the best approach.


Kristen Henderson, the owner of The Savvy Student, LLC, has an exceptional love for learning along with helping others! From a very young age, Kristen knew she wanted to teach. She graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (B.S.I.S.) degree. After one short year of teaching, she decided to continue her education and received her Master's Degree from the University of North Texas. 

Kristen taught for many years in Plano ISD. During that time, she held several leadership positions including, being an assistant team leader then moving into a Team Leader position.

Giving back to the community is a priority for Kristen. She is an avid supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. CF hits home for Kristen as her late nephew, David Denning, and cousins, Danny and David Brumagin, suffer from this terrible disease. In addition to supporting CF, she is an active community member. Some of Kristen's recent roles have been:

* Member of Weatherford Chamber of Commerce

* President of Foot Works Performing Arts Center Parent Association

* Brock ISD District Improvement Committee Member

* Brock ISD Health Advisory Committee Member

* Brock ISD District Of Innovation Committee Member


Family time is a passion for Kristen. She has 2 children, who are now in college and high school, along with a husband of  23 years. They love to travel, ski and simply spending time together.


Thank you for getting to know us a little better. It would be my pleasure to help your student(s) along their educational journey. I would love to hear from you and I am confident we will make a difference. 

Kristen Henderson, M.Ed.
