Welcome to Affective Needs K-6! 


      
      My name is Kristen White and I am the center-based, affective needs teacher at Rock Ridge Elementary.  This is my third year in the district, and I could not be more excited to continue being 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 camping, running, hiking, playing soccer, 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.
