Kristi Talagan, M.Ed

For over three decades, I have been working as an educator and administrator in Massachusetts. During that time, I was responsible for overseeing an inner-city school system's safety and security systems.

Responsibilities included writing policies and procedures, compliance training, professional development seminars such as; Crisis Intervention and de-escalation, educational law topics, behavior management, substance abuse, Restorative Justice, social emotional learning, and Mindfulness. During my tenure, I worked with educators, security staff, community police, gang units, drug units, DOJ, court systems, mental health providers, city, state, and federal staff on regulatory issues and reform. I have attended trainings for internet-based threats/hacking and security breaches presented by the FBI in Massachusetts. Additionally, I am trained in ALICE/active shooter training.

I worked daily for over twenty years keeping illegal substances out of the hands of minors. The goal was and still is to provide a safe and drug free environment so learning can take place.

Today, I offer marijuana workforce education to prevent the diversion of marijuana to minors, while supporting the safe and responsible access to adult use marijuana in Massachusetts.
In addition to my M.Ed, I hold a BS degree in Management Information Systems. I have five years of experience working with companies conducting systems analysis and training to work in tandem with state regulations.
As a professor at a local Boston college, I develop and instruct classes in the Workforce and Development Department.
I have been awarded multiple grants for my innovative curriculums from the MA Governor's Office for Workforce and Development to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to address core equity-related challenges in schools Get Stuff Done! Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

The RVT program was designed using a Universal Design method. UDL methods break down the barriers to understanding complicated (regulatory) or difficult to understand material so that all have equal access to the curriculum.

I also dabble into to growing marijuana and summer veggies! I enjoy writing blogs about my journey with this misunderstood plant.
