Christine was born and raised in San Jose, CA, and earned her teaching credential from San Francisco State University in 2015. She has been living and teaching in Portland, OR, for the past five years. She is a creative and compassionate educator, lifelong student, and enjoys connecting with her community through music, art, and activism. She loves biking to the farmers market to score some fresh produce for the large meals she cooks up for herself and loved ones. She’s very much looking forward to the next time she can dance her heart out at her favorite local music venues. Christine also gets a kick out of first grade humor and can’t wait to safely get back into the classroom with her students.
