Kristin Hovious, SEL Chicago

As a coach, trainer and facilitator, Kristin combines a career of teaching and serving with her passion for creating mutually respectful environments for families, children, schools and communities. 

In her collaboration with teachers, administrations and families, Kristin’s goal is to help facilitate opportunities for adults and students to become compassionate leaders, with the hope that doing so will help build more peaceful communities.  She serves on the Positive Discipline Association’s Board of Directors, and was instrumental in her leadership conducting data collection for the Positive Discipline Parent Education Research Project. Her clients include Chicago Public Schools, Illinois State University, Columbia College, Youth Guidance, Chicago Park District, and private institutions.

Kristin also is a committed teacher with over a decade of experience in vocational, adult education, serving Chicago’s Cortiva Institute as both Education Director (2007-2008) and Adjunct Faculty (2006-2017.)  With the knowledge that formal education during field work deepens understanding, Kristin is completing coursework at Erikson Institute, earning her Masters of Social Work with a developmentally informed concentration in children and families.
