Mrs. Kristen Yokel


I'm Mrs. Yokel and I teach 3rd grade at Los Medanos.  I began teaching young children in 2011 at the preschool and pre-kindergarten level and joined the Los Medanos family as a 3rd grade teacher in 2015. I live in Martinez with my husband, our baby boy Austin, and our dog Asher. 

My goal as your student's teacher is to make sure that they learn the necessary skills and concepts and become independent, responsible students so that they can be successful in their current and future academic journey. In our class, we focus on working together as a family to help everyone be successful not only as a student, but as a caring and respectful person. 

If you have a student in my class, their distance learing lessons and other classwork will be on Google Classroom and class meetings and live teaching will be done through Zoom. For daily communication, I will be using the Classtag app. This app is also the fastest and most convenient way to get into contact with me with any questions or concerns. You can also contact me by email at
