Krisa Winn holds a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Arkansas State University, and an associate degree in Practical Theology from Christ for the Nations Institute. For more than 20 years, she was a classroom teacher in both private and public-school settings. She has also worked as a private tutor, an early childhood intervention specialist, and as an academic language therapist in training, working with students who have dyslexia.
Throughout her career, she has had many opportunities to work with children with various special needs. Students with attention deficit disorder, attachment issues, developmental delays, auditory processing disorder, sensory processing disorders, and autism (among others) have filled her class rosters and her heart.
Krisa joined Home School Legal Defense Association as an educational consultant in 2012, and she continues to serve in that capacity. She offers resources, support and guidance to parents who are homeschooling children with special needs. In her free time, Krisa enjoys singing, playing piano, leading worship, and taking walks.
After almost 23 years of marriage, Krisa and her husband Bryon were blessed with the birth of their first child, Grace. Three years later, their second miracle baby, Karis Joy, was born. The Winn family is currently homeschooling in their home in South Arkansas.
