I'm Kristina and I am an Educator with a passion for being Black, written words, equity and inclusion, learning, and technology. I am from New York (The Bronx to be exact) and am currently living in Arizona.

Over the years, I have been a classroom teacher, a social media and online marketing consultant, a web design business owner, and most recently, an happiness engineer at WordPress.com. I'm interested in so many things and love learning so  I definitely prefer to be free to fill my creative cup.

At 43, I am following my passion: creating educational content that helps create a world of inclusion and acceptance. I plan my life around homeschooling my child whose nickname is The Gerg, writing books and poetry, and  protecting my peace.

Sometimes I write as Kashima Simone Kennedy.
