Kristi Tippett

Interim Director
WSU Pullman
Cleveland Hall 382



Kristi was born and raised in Washington state and is exceptionally fond of WSU Pullman’s Cleveland Hall, home of WSU ROAR. Over the past 27 years, she has spent countless hours there: First as an undergraduate student earning a teaching degree; next as a graduate student seeking a master’s degree in educational psychology; and recently, teaching for the College of Education.

Kristi has enjoyed teaching and learning through a variety of different roles within the K12 environment, including assignments in inclusive classrooms, resource rooms, life skills centers, teacher professional development, and advocacy work. For the past few years, she has been providing instruction for preservice teachers at WSU.

Kristi’s husband, Ryan, is also a WSU alumnus. Their oldest son, Ryker, is a sophomore at WSU and their two daughters, Emerson and Piper, attend Pullman Public Schools. Together they enjoy hiking, camping, and snow and water sports.
