Kristina Shea has worked the last four years as an education
specialist at Rio Linda High School and is proud of the progress
her students make. “When my freshmen get to me, they often don’t
know the whole alphabet. We set them to read and teach them to do
math, or even just how to recognize colors. We have all different
ages of learners. They’re constantly growing.”
Her students are all high school age and most have moderate to
severe intellectual disabilities such as Down syndrome or autism.
