Kristina started her teaching career with Teach for America. She was placed in Nashville, TN where she taught science to 7th and 8th grade students in underserved school communities. She moved back to the Bay Area in 2012 and taught middle school math at St. Mary School in Walnut Creek for 5 years before (re)joining the Carondelet community. During her time here at Carondelet, she helped create the innovative, mastery-based math program for Algebra 1 through Trigonometry Honors.
Kristina also serves as one of Carondelet’s swim coaches. As a student, she helped the Cougars win back-to-back NCS swimming titles her junior and senior years and is hoping to lead our current team to the same level of success.
Outside of school, you can find Kristina with her German Shepherd, Opry Belle. Together they love hiking, playing at the beach, and road tripping to as many National Parks as possible.
