Hello. My name is Kristin Welch, most people call me Kritty
I’m a creative and curious life-long learner. I love learning about ways to make education and life more meaningful and fun. I was an art major and I worked in the fashion industry and at a few sculpting jobs before going back to school for my teaching credential in 1996.
I was not your typical student and I loathed traditional school until 10th grade. I think Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School and Skidmore College ] changed my life and showed me there were ways education could actually be creative and fun even when you weren’t in art class.
Presently, I work at UCLA Math Project as a Coginitively Guided Instruction (CGI) Math Coach. CGI centers itself around student thinking and problem solving and it’s a wonderful way to learn with and from students.
I am a teacher on leave from LAUSD for the 2019-2020 school year. I have my master’s in STEAM education. I am an advocate for sketchnoting, playful learning, and I’m an EdTech enthusiast. This blog is a place you can follow my journey, growing as an educator and learner… and parent.
Thank you for reading. 🙂
