TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Christy passed away suddenly July 2017 shortly before starting another school year. Teaching was her love and passion. Christy had 13 years experience teaching elementary school. Most of those years were spent teaching first and third grade, both of which she loved. She also taught sixth grade several years. She received her STEM endorsement. In addition, she taught preschool and English in Russia, Taiwan, and the United States. She was a wife and a mother of one elementary-aged kids and three teenagers. "I enjoy creating new projects for my students and my own children to enjoy, and I hope that you will enjoy them as well!" Christy--Her dream was to eventually create teaching aids full time like the one's in her store.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching philosophy is that learning should be fun! I love to learn, and my hope is to be able to pass that love of learning on to my students as well. I try hard to make school fun, creative, and exciting so that my students will look forward to being there with me!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University with a degree in elementary education. She completed her STEM endorsement.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION
