Hi! I'm Kris.
I'm a certified K-8 teacher with over 17 years of teaching experience both in and out of the classroom. I’m dedicated to creating a supportive space where LGBTQ+ students can discover who they are, what lights them up, and what they can contribute to the world. This is a safe academic space where kids can be completely themselves.
“My 11-year-old non-binary child's academic performance has improved tremendously this year, as well as their confidence. We are grateful for Kris’ engaged teaching, student-centered approach, and new (to us) learning activities."

2023 Scholarship Grant
Birds of a Feather received a grant from the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County to support queer youth! I'm now offering scholarships to make tutoring accessible for all.
"It's a wonderful feeling as a parent to know that your child is being honored for who they are and encouraged to become more than they think they can be!"
