She empathizes easily, understands the challenges in education today, and cares deeply about performance and support. Above all she is a learner herself."

Moreover, she has a deep understanding of curriculum and the systems that need to be in place to bring about positive, significant adacemic improvements. If your district/organization is looking for someone transformational, she is a person who will take your district from good to great."

"Kristi has served in a number of diverse educational roles and this enables her to see what it takes to truly improve growth and achievement. She has been an educational consultant, superintendent, director of curriculum and instruction, principal and classroom teacher. This experience enables her to quickly assess a situation, engage people and work toward productive action. Kristi knows what teachers need to be successful and she knows how to connect with them in ways that both support and challenge them. Her mind is very strategic and we relied on her keen ability to assess and make strategic corrections as necessary. Finally, the strength which I believe brings all the other strengths together is that she knows how to connect and relate with people."
