Retsy Kitchen is the GRASP Advisor for Highland Springs and Varina high schools, and the Advanced Career Education Center at Highland Springs.
Retsy graduated from Texas A&M University in Kingsville, Texas, and then set off with her husband, Paul, for Rota, Spain. Three years and one child later, they returned to Richmond, Virginia, where they have happily raised four children – all of whom have attended Henrico County Public Schools. Retsy’s children-two sons, two daughters- followed one another to the United States Naval Academy and are commissioned officers in the Navy and Marine Corps. She has worked in Henrico County Public Schools for six years and feels privileged to be part of the GRASP family, serving Varina, Highland Springs and Highland Springs Tech Center.
