With 20 years of experience working in a variety of roles in education, Kristina’s focus on coaching transformational change integrates an empathy-centered approach to improve pedagogical and productivity environments. Her goal is to empower educators with sustainable toolkits as a way to achieve strategic visioning, planning, and implementation. Holding multiple degrees and various certifications, Kristina continues to stay current on trends through her professional affiliations, podcast listening, and reading scholars before her.
In her attempt to stay balanced, you’ll find Kristina spending time between the Bay Area and the “real” Northern California where she explores trails, cooks way too many servings, soaks up the rivers, lakes, and waterfalls, and above all, hangs out with the three coolest people she knows who allow her to be V3MAMA - her kids, and of course their chiweenie, Vinny. Kristina still holds onto her Chicago roots for so many things, and a lazy Sunday allows her to laugh along with Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, though she misses Prairie Home Companion.

Transformational change with sustainable impact is easier said than done in any organization, and establishing sustainable impact in education could be argued as even more challenging. Guiding Transformational Change in Education provides simple yet effective strategies with honest experiences and examples that you, as an educator, can leverage when implementing transformational change of any size across all grade levels, academic areas, and school environments.
Teachers and school administrators, while extensively and exhaustively degreed, credentialed, and certified, typically do not have backgrounds in organizational leadership, change management, or project management. This book attempts to blend those worlds when implementing change at schools and is intended for educators who are tasked with working on or leading a project but who have not received formal training in how to do so effectively.
This book is meant to contribute to the existing works dedicated to change and project management, yet take a step beyond to focus those practices in education.
