Kristina Miller( She/Her/Hers )
Professor Miller has gained invaluable experience, serving communities within Riverside and San Bernardino counties for over 10 years. Prior to her professional career, her passion working with children and teaching was influenced by her experiences she obtained as an undergraduate. While attending University of California, Riverside, she volunteered as a math tutor for at-risk youth in high school, which later influenced her decision to work as an after-school tutor and teacher for children, ages K-12. In addition to her teaching experience, she worked as a research assistant in the Childhood Cognition Lab that sparked her interest in research, and her desire to gain a deeper understanding of how children learn. As a graduate student, she studied criminal justice at California State University, San Bernardino, focusing her research on family dynamics, education, and juvenile delinquency in underserved communities. She has applied both her degrees and work experience to directly and indirectly helping children and families within various community organizations, including social service and law enforcement agencies. In addition to being a lecturer in the Department of Child & Adolescent Development, she works as a program specialist, researching rehabilitative and educational programs available to juveniles and adults involved in the criminal justice system in San Bernardino, CA. When she isn't teaching or researching, she spends time with her husband and two boys.
