Kristina Cochran

I began my career in education during college working as a paraprofessional at the Evergreen Center, a residential setting providing treatment and educational opportunities to students with severe developmental disabilities. As part of my student teaching, I worked as an Intensive Special Needs Teacher for students in Kindergarten through grade two for one year. After receiving my degree, I branched out to a passion of mine, students with behavioral needs, and worked as a Behavioral Management Teacher for students in grades three through five for three years. Seeking employment closer to my new area of residence, I came upon Newmarket, where I have worked as a Case Manager for grade seven and then the High School for eight years before becoming the Building Coordinator.
