binduHi! My name is Bindu Kumar, and I am thrilled to be a part of McSpedden! This is my 8th year in SLC. 

I moved from Bengaluru, India in 1999, and I am so glad we made Frisco our home away from home! My son graduated this summer from MIT, and my daughter is a Junior at Centennial High School. We love traveling, cooking, eating out and spending time together as a family. 

I welcome all of you to this wonderful school, and look forward to all the growth and fun that is in store!
