Mrs. Cristy
Head Teacher

Personal Profile

When I was younger, my hopes for when I was a grown up were to be a 5th grade math teacher and have a big family with a bunch of children. I am now a wife to my high school sweetheart and a mom to four wonderful children ranging from ages 4-19. Our oldest is currently attending the University of Oregon. Not only did I end up having the big family that I always wanted but I also did become a teacher, although I teach much more than math. I teach 15 wonderful children from ages 2-5 their numbers, letters, shapes, colors, early learning life skills, science and so much more. I am beyond blessed to be a part of their lives!
