Welcome to Room 40!
Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Sacramento. My father was a doctor, my mother a teacher. I have an older sister and two younger brothers. I received my B.A. in Ethnic Studies from U.C. Berkeley (I come from a family of CAL Bears! GO BEARS!) and my teaching credential, with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education, from Sonoma State. I also have my CLAD. Before I became a teacher I was a clothing designer with my own label, kristianna. As a child I always wanted to be a teacher.
I love to garden (at home and at school), work on my house and enjoy the ocean. I am very interested in gardening, especially drought-resistant natives and succulents. I also enjoy spending time with my son, Matt, 24. Matt is studying Biology and is an avid tennis player, instructor and coach. Mary's, Basque french bread and Mexican food are some of my favorites! My favorite color is blue. My life is full, but rewarding!
We can ALWAYS use vegetables/edibles, natives, perennials, drought-resistant plants, bulbs and succulents for our garden! Seeds too!
