Hey there! I’m Christina. I am a wife – Tim and I have been married for almost 10 years. We were matched on eHarmony! We have two furbabies: George and Ringo. George is a 4 year old jovial black lab-mix and Ringo is a 10 year old grumpy black cat.
I taught elementary music for 12 years but recently decided it was time for a change. I am now a 4th grade classroom teacher! I have my own set of kids – 24 of them this year. It is so fun to get to know the students on a more personal level and claim them as my own. One of my favorite things to do is to create birthday reading pillows for each student.
Tim is also a teacher. He teaches video production to high school students.
Teachers: Lifelong Learners
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Vocal Music Education from Northwest Missouri State University and a Master’s Degree in Special Education – Gifted Education from University of Nebraska – Kearney. One of my most recent educational accomplishments is completing the Google Certified Educator Level 1 and Level 2 courses.
Beyond the Classroom
I am constantly learning something new – whether that is something for my classroom or a new creative hobby like blogging, photography, or quilting, sewing, and other arts/crafts. You could say I’m a bit of a multipassionate. 😉
Tim and I fall into a category of non-parents called “childless not by choice.” (Had I not been in the situation I’m in, I probably wouldn’t have known that there was such a thing!). Due to endometriosis and surgical complications, we are not able to conceive. It’s natural to question why things like that happen to good people but the best we can come up with is that there is something bigger planned for us to touch as many lives as possible. Maybe you are a childless teacher as well. I hope you can find some commonalities here…an a place to share your ideas as well.
