Kristine Mraz is co-author (with Alison Porceli and Cheryl Tyler) of Purposeful Play, the book that helps you make play a powerful part of your teaching. Her previous title A Mindset for Learning, co-authored with Christine Hertz, provides practical and powerful strategies for cultivating optimism, flexibility, and empathy alongside traditional academic skills. She is also co-author with Marjorie Martinelli of Smarter Charts and Smarter Charts for Math, Science, and Social Studies. Their popular blog chartchums keeps teachers in touch with ongoing and relevant classroom issues and ways to use charts as a support.
Chartchums is also on Facebook and on Twitter @chartchums!
Kristi teaches Kindergarten in the New York City Public schools. In addition to writing and teaching, she consults in schools across the country and as far away as Taiwan. She primarily supports teachers in early literacy, play, and inquiry based learning. On the off chance she has free time, you’ll find Kristi reading on a couch in Brooklyn with her dog and her husband.
