Kristina brings with her a life-long love of learning. She joins Noodle Partners with over 20 years of experience in education, ranging from Preschool-aged children, to teen-parent programs, to working with students at a private high school. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Child & Adolescent Development from California State University, Northridge, and has dedicated the past 10 years of her career as a high school administrator and teacher, specifically as Director of Service Learning & Student Activities, at a Los Angeles-based high school. Kristina was proud to grow the Service Learning program into a robust and important part of student life on and off campus, partnering students with local non-profit organizations. She also found fulfillment and joy in being a student advocate, teaching students about graphic design through her Yearbook course, and by developing students’ Social Emotional skills through her Human Development course.
