ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by. I'm Kristine and I have been working in special education for 12 years now. I started at UC Berkeley's Disability Auxiliary Unit, then became an instructional assistant, teacher, and department coordinator. I feel very fortunate to teach in a truly exciting and innovative area of Silicon Valley - Mountain View, CA. This curriculum series is the culmination of 10 years of teaching transition topics in my Career Connections classroom. I strive to make these resources as current as possible, and adapt them regularly as education continues to evolve!

Personally, I am a Mom of 2 girls and my husband is also a Special Education High School Teacher. We enjoy spending time on the coast as much as possible. I also enjoy playing the piano, writing, and watching movies with my girls!

If you'd like to see more about this educational mission, please add me on instagram or facebook: @whatiwishidlearnedinschool, or on TikTok @whatiwishidlearned (my daughter is teaching me ;)
