Ever since Christine could remember, she’s had a passion for teaching. Growing up and seeing the example of her father as a school administrator and superintendent, her desires for being in the education system progressed. Over the years she worked in several schools tutoring students. She received her B.S. degree in Elementary Education with a TESOL minor from Brigham Young University. Prior to Pinewood, Christine taught various elementary-aged students at San Jose Unified School District. As you see her in action, you’ll understand why she received the “Teacher of the Year” award for 2019. Christine is energetic and passionate about teaching, with a desire to make a difference in our future generation. When she’s not in the classroom, you will find her in the gym trying out the newest exercise routines! She also loves spending time with her family and trying out the latest foods in the Bay Area.
