Innovation Coordinator at The Kinkaid School (Houston, TX)
Krissy Venosdale is a teacher, learner, maker, and dreamer. With almost 20 years of experience in education, she currently runs her school’s makerspace, “The Launch Pad,” for Prek to 4th grade learners. She also spends her days supporting classroom teachers, and overseeing the 4th-grade live morning news broadcast, KLSTV, and keeping the building technology operating to maximize learning opportunities. She loves incorporating creativity and technology in authentic ways, helping teachers grow, and seeing kids experience the true power of being global citizens. As much as she loves gadgets, she also truly believes in the raw power of a kid’s imagination. She’s both a Google Certified Innovator and an Apple Distinguished Educator. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, running with her dog, spoiling her rabbit, and doodling with Sharpies. She believes wholeheartedly that joy should be an educational standard.
