Kristina Krzywonos recently published an article, "If U Liked It Then U Shoulda Put a Grade On It: Communicating Values Through Assessment," with the Association for Middle Level Education. Her article touches on the ways that assessing student knowledge mastery must be differentiated, and how the communication around assessment gets to the core value of students as learners.
Kristina came to CFS in 2018 with eight years of teaching experience at an independent school in High Point, North Carolina. During that time she was an adviser in both the middle and upper school, facilitated service learning opportunities, coached several Odyssey of the Mind teams, and served as a member of the faculty leadership team. Her degree in chemistry is from High Point University, where her research ranged from instrumental analysis to designing an experiential science outreach program for local elementary schools. Kristina's teaching style is grounded in the idea that learning is a process, demonstrated in her redesign of the eighth grade science curriculum at her former school to provide feedback to students without the use of numerical grades.
