Home > About Us> Meet Krista
Krista Barth has been passionately instructing struggling readers and advising parents for over a decade. Her interest began in 2004 when she worked as an advocate at Rosie’s Place Homeless Shelter in Boston, Massachusetts while earning a bachelor’s in Sociology. It was there that she first developed a passion for education as she assisted illiterate women; helping them to write letters and read important documents.
From 2006 to 2014 Miss. Barth served students of Miami Dade County Public Schools, providing differentiated instruction to kindergartners through eighth grade students. She developed learning centers in her classrooms and integrated technology in order to meet the diverse needs of general education students, gifted students, students with behavioral disorders, and students with varied learning disabilities. It was during this time frame that Miss. Barth earned her Master’s In Exceptional Student Education from Barry University, maintaining a 4.0 GPA and graduating in 2011.
Working alongside Doctor Looby of Barry University, Miss. Barth completed an independent study exploring the efficacy of the Response to Intervention program. This experience enriched her understanding of academic data analysis, specifically in the areas of reliability and validity. Miss. Barth has an extensive background when it comes to Exceptional Student Education and Individual Educational Plans (IEP).
Not only has she been involved in the creation of over seven hundred Individual Educational Plans, but she also has held the responsibility of implementing plans in the classroom.
Since pursuing advocacy, Miss. Barth has attended Wrightslaw Trainings and graduated from the Institute of Special Education Advocacy Training at William and Mary Law School in 2016, returning in 2017 as an alumni and earning an additional certificate. Miss. Barth is a member of the Council of Parents Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA) and attended COPAA’s 2017 pre-conference and conference sessions, including Filing Due Process Complaints for Advocates.
