After earning her BA from UCLA and her Teaching Credential from UCI, Christine taught bilingual elementary school in both Santa Ana Unified and Santa Barbara Unified School Districts. After 12 years in the classroom she became a Teacher of Teachers and spent two years conducting professional development trainings for teachers across the state of California. After the birth of her son, Christine decided to take a break from her career to be a full time mom. She couldn’t stop teaching though, and transferred her skills to her other passion, yoga. She has been a yoga teacher for the past 14 years. Several years ago her family spent the year in Chile where she homeschooled her son. “The experience was so positive. We both absolutely thrived. It led me to want to be back in the classroom with the kids again. I love the connection, and it makes me happy to be of service to the home school community back home.” She has been teaching science, history, literature, and Spanish to homeschoolers in Orange County since 2013.
