ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by! My name is Kristine. I am a graduate from UC Berkeley and received my mild/moderate special education credential from San Jose State University. Before teaching, I worked in the service industry. I was a server at 7+ restaurants while saving up money to travel and backpack. I worked for a few years in food journalism under a food critic and freelancing, but for some reason, special education kept "coming up." A lot of coincidences later, and I am in my 9th year working in special education in the bay area. My husband is also a special education teacher for high school. We have two daughters together.

In my first year of teaching, I was assigned a class called "Life Skills" and that is where this story begins. I realized that the curriculum I wanted just didn't exist.

I have endeavored to create curriculum that is easy to follow, relevant, and compelling for students. It's also meant to look organic: no fancy fonts...it doesn't look like it's from a professional curriculum company. It looks like it very well could have been made by you -- and that's the point. I think that when students see it as your handiwork, they are drawn to it.

Again, thank you so much for stopping by and reading. If you have any feedback on these products, feel free to email me anytime at kristine@whatiwishidlearnedinschool. Or, if you have any ideas for transition materials that might be helpful, please also drop me a line...I would love to connect about what has worked for you or what ideas you might have regarding secondary transition. I believe it can be better for our students.

“Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians. It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, teach them to think straight, if possible.” -- Robert M. Hutchins
