Kristen Saham


“I am proud to be a Stratford employee as well as a Stratford parent.”

Kristen Saham is in her sixteenth year at Stratford School.  Before taking on her current role as th founding Principal at Stratford School Milpitas Corning campus, Kristen taught pre-kindergarten through second grade, provided extended day care for the summer program, and served as a vice principal at Stratford’s Sunnyvale De Anza Park campus. Additionally, she helped open the Milpitas Great Mall Parkway campus as the Director of Lower School in 2016.

Kristen believes that children learn best in a fun and exciting environment where mistakes are seen as learning opportunities, and team work is celebrated.

At Stratford, students are given the freedom to “fail forward” and to learn from their peers – this philosophy makes Kristen proud to work at Stratford School.
