My bio from our website (www.sipinclusion.org) is below, but talk to me about how to best scale UDL across a large state like California and how we can partner in this work! I am a huge Food Network fan and adore my husband, kids, and 2 labradors more than anything! Enjoy the symposium!
Kristin Brooks has been the driving force behind SIP’s success from 2014 to present, supporting and motivating grantees towards inclusion while leading to spectacular outcomes which have influenced the expansion of the SIP project. A seasoned professional, Kristin has dedicated the past 20 years to the education and inclusion of students with and without disabilities. Trained as a speech-language pathologist, she was instrumental in co-creating a pioneering inclusive preschool in southern California in 2005! A true believer in having organizational systems recognize their ‘self-imposed barriers’ while working to eliminate the same via transforming their culture, policies and practices, Kristin inspires and informs audiences by presenting at a range of statewide conferences and symposiums. Her diverse range of experience includes serving as a site level Administrator as well as a Special Education Director for the entire District. Always looking to widen impact and maximize benefits for all students, Kristin transitioned to statewide grant work supporting multiple local educational agencies (LEAs) through systems change to build, implement, sustain, and scale up services and programs toward inclusion and achievement. Kristin earned her master’s degree in Communicative Disorders from the University of Redlands and is a candidate for a Doctorate in Leadership for Educational Justice.
