I am what I am because of who we all are Leymah Gbowee

Prior to joining CTQ, Kristoffer served as a Teach for America corps member in the Las Vegas Valley, teaching fifth grade and completing a master’s degree in Elementary Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He also worked in a hybrid teaching role as a writing instructor and data strategist to provide school staff with assessment results to inform instruction and intervention. A native of California, he earned degrees in business economics and law and society while attending the University of California, Santa Barbara. An avid reader of nonfiction, Kristoffer is seeking recommendations for the book that will get him hooked on fiction. Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia have failed to convince, but Goosebumps came close a few decades ago. Although StrengthsFinder 2.0 overlooked his “woo,” the survey appropriately identified positivity as his most dominant strength. Kristoffer prefer dogs to cats, appetizers to desserts, and aisle seats to the ones against the window.
