Kyndal has spent the majority of her 10 years in education in the early childhood setting. Her years teaching preschool and pre-K in underserved communities taught her how imperative it is to provide quality education and experiences even before kindergarten. Early childhood education quickly became her passion. Now as a co-principal at The Primary School, in East Palo Alto, California, Kyndal is motivated to provide quality academic and social-emotional experiences that are developmentally appropriate, rigorous, and fun. Kyndal feels most successful when the teachers and students she works with demonstrate that they feel safe, respected, and capable. One of her favorite things to hear students say is, “I did it!” She strongly believes in the importance of creating joyous and intentional classrooms. Kyndal has a B.A. in communication from the University of Southern California and an M.A. in early childhood education from Loyola Marymount University.
