Kristin Puccini is the Director of the Homework Cafe. She was born and raised in the Bay Area. Ever since she was young, she has been fascinated with American Sign Language. She took four years of ASL in high school and earned a degree in deaf studies. Her interest in the language provided an opportunity for her to make many connections within the deaf community. She later went on to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in history from UC Berkeley.
Throughout the years Kristin has volunteered for organizations that focus on investing in the lives of teenagers. This passion has not only allowed her to uplift youth here locally, but has also provided her the opportunity to live amongst and empower youth overseas.
When she’s not teaching, you can catch Kristin at a ball game or on an endless quest to find the best Mexican food around!
