Kristina Van Tine 
Teacher of Students with Learning Disabilities

Hello and Welcome! My name is Kristina Van Tine and I will be your child's Special Education Teacher and case manager. Please feel free to reach out at any time with questions or concerns. This year I am working with students in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 5th grade. This is my 4th year teaching and my 4th year at Sinclair! 

Students and Families,
It saddens me deeply to announce that we are not returning to school this year and that our time together ended so abruptly.  You are missed and thought about often and I can't wait to see you most of you again next year and get back to learning.  Stay safe and healthy and please let me know if there is anything I can do to help during this difficult and stressful time.  Feel free to email me at You can access many of our great websites such as IXL (for math or reading) and MyOn as well as others such as Brain Pop, Pebble Go, etc. by using your Clever account. Additionally, your teachers will be posting suggested activities to review things you have learned this year, so be sure to check their pages if you are looking for something to do. I encourage you to try and spend some time outdoors (safely) and go for a walk or bike/scooter ride , read a book outside, draw/color a picture, or go on a number or letter hunt in the neighborhood. Learning does not always have to happen indoors or with books and technology! 

If you are interested in specific work for your child regarding their IEP goals, please reach out via email and I am happy to assist with that.

I have set up Office Hours where I am available to video conference with your child to support their grade level suggested review work or just to check in. Please email me if you are interested and I will set up a Zoom session. I can be reached via email at any time as I check it frequently. I will respond as soon as possible.

Tuesdays: 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Thursdays: 9:00am - 10:00am
Fridays: 12:00pm - 1:00pm

You can also refer to your grade level page as well as they will be updated weekly with new suggested review activities.  Here are the links for the grade level pages.
