Kimberly Telfer-Radzat

Veteran Teacher and PhD Student

I am a third year PhD student at University of California, Irvine, studying the development of executive function. I have taught for over 25 years in public, private, and special needs schools and have training as both a reading specialist and educational therapist. After taking a cohort of students from first to eighth grade, I used my sabbatical to apply to UC Irvine and further my understanding of learning and cognition. I am also involved in the startup of a new Waldorf charter school.
