Center-Based - Kristen White

                       Welcome to Center-Based K-6! 

                                                My name is Kristen White and I am the Center-Based, SED teacher at Rock Ridge Elementary.  This is my first year in the                                               district, and I could not be more excited to be a part of this wonderful community!  As your child's teacher, I will provide a                                                   safe, productive, and therapeutic learning environment.  My instruction will be individualized and tailored to meet your                                                       child's unique needs; my focus is for each student to be given the best opportunity to reach his/her potential. 

                                                I moved to Colorado from Baltimore, Maryland at the beginning of the 2016 school year; I currently live in Denver.  I                                                       received my bachelor's degree in Psychology, and my master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education.  Prior to                                                           teaching, I worked on the inpatient Neurobehavioral Unit at Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore; I was afforded the                                                       opportunity to work closely with children and adolescents with profound disabilities.  From this experience, I knew I wanted                                               to go into special education.  My hobbies include playing soccer, running, hiking, and skiing (I love to do anything active!).  I                                               also enjoy reading, going to the beach, listening to music, watching movies, and spending time with friends and family.
