Kristen Yaldo, B.A.
Kristen was born and raised in San Diego. She graduated with her Bachelors of Arts from California State University, San Marcos in 2014, and she is currently working on her Masters of Science in Communicative Disorders and Sciences Degree (Speech-Language Pathology) through California State University, Northridge.
Prior to her work with JKS & Associates, Kristen spent a year interning at a speech pathology clinic instructing an after-school reading program at several elementary schools. She also worked at an educational center that focused on literacy. Her experiences before JKS prepared her to help children become more phonemically and phonologically aware and, ultimately, make them stronger readers and writers.
As a literary specialist at JKS and Associates, Kristen has a wide-range of experience working with children of all ages. Kristen ensures that her students advance in their reading fluency, comprehension, critical thinking, and written expression; she does that by building strong relationships with her students and trying to make their sessions productive and fun.
When Kristen is not working or studying for school, she enjoys spending time with her family as well as reading, exercising, and exploring San Diego.
