TRAINER: Eileen Cristobal-Rodriguez, M.A.


Eileen received her master’s degree and teaching credential in early childhood special education and has a deep-rooted passion in early intervention and teaching effective

social communication skills at an early age.

For over 11 years, she has focused on early intervention and preschool, working with students who have mild to moderate disabilities.

Eileen taught at one of the original preschool sites that piloted the Kimochis Early Childhood Curriculum and is living proof of the efficacy of Kimochis in the classroom setting and in the home.

When Eileen first attended the Kimochis Training, she was immediately “hooked,” and that love has emanated into an exuberant teaching of the Kimochis tenets in all facets of her day.

She continues her work in the preschool classroom incorporating Kimochis in her program on a daily basis. It has been a dream of hers to be a Kimochis trainer and she is EXCITED to join the team of Kimochis Certified Trainers.

Eileen is a self-proclaimed “goofy” teacher with a cheesy sense of humor and some definite Type-A tendencies. When she isn’t busy playing with Kimochis and being silly with her preschool students, Eileen likes to do things “off the beaten path” with her husband.
