She received credentials in administration of teaching and learning from Walden University and administration certification from Western Governor’s University. She holds her teaching and administration licenses in both Alaska and Washington. Ms. Goldy brings 40 years of experience in diverse K-12 schools, districts and agencies to her work with CORE. She has taught primary grades and students with disabilities in grades K–12; served as migrant, bilingual, Title 1 and behavior specialist; and provided training and site support through Puget Sound Educational Service District and classes through Seattle Pacific University. Most recently Cris served as a curriculum director, district instructional leader and assistant principal for a remote Alaska Native community.
Cris worked for CORE from 2003 to 2014, serving as a consultant and Educational Services Manager. In that time, she worked with schools, districts, state and federal agencies in urban, suburban, and isolated rural school settings throughout the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, providing training, site support and district/agency implementation guidance. In 2014 she answered a call to join a remote, isolated district in the Alaskan Arctic as director of curriculum, then took the challenge of supporting a school-wide reform initiative in a pre-K – 5th grade elementary school with 700 students. Having experienced great success in a difficult setting, Cris retired from full-time work in 2019 and has returned to CORE.
Cris provides services to schools, districts and agencies to support effective program implementation, multi-tiered systems of support, special education and special programs support, strategic improvement plans, instructional leadership, teacher development, training and coaching. Her specialties are administrative leadership, K-2 literacy, interventions and special education. She is excited to be back with CORE, maintaining her passion to ensure all children enjoy high levels of success in school.
