Crystal Zook

Rural Program Coordinator


A mom of four who decided to go to college when her eldest son received a diagnosis of autism in the 5th grade. She spent several years studying to receive her master of science in Special Education from Western Oregon University. After graduation, her family moved to Alaska where Crystal spent the first school year traveling to many of Alaska’s bush communities helping teachers and their students with multiple disabilities for SESA (Special Education Services Agency).
Crystal's professional talents range from instructional design and behavior management to ASD (autism spectrum disorder) and FASD (fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, as well as multiple courses in diversity and culture (including an immersive experience in a Yupik fish camp).  Crystal uses those unique experiences in her position as Rural Program Coordinator here at Camp Fire Alaska.
"All behavior is a form of communication and behavior goes where reinforcement flows."
