Born in Eugene, Christina in native to Oregon. Her family moved around a lot, but she eventually settled in Central Oregon, living in Redmond for nearly 30 years. Her path to teaching was not straight and narrow, but she believes that teaching is her calling, despite finding it later in life. After raising two wonderful sons, in a home bustling with laughter and happy memories, she went back to school for a Masters in Education.

Christina graduated from Concordia University in 2013, with a 4.0 GPA, and as a member of the honor society, Kappa Delta Pi. While in the program, she tutored struggling readers through the Concordia Teacher’s Corps. After graduating, she substitute taught in several districts and, fortunately, found Trillium. When a Kindergarten Teacher position opened, she applied, and made the team! This is Christina’s first year teaching 2-3 at Trillium.

Fawn’s Class Blog

Fawn’s journey as an educator began in New England, where she worked in outdoor programs with students from city schools. For many of her students, this was their first experience outside of the metropolitan area. She saw a spark of excitement light up in their eyes, as they spent days in the forest, exploring, wading through streams, and absorbing lessons in ecology and team building.

Following several seasonal positions in Environmental Education, Fawn hungered for more meaningful and long-term connections with students. She then enrolled in the Masters of Education program at Antioch University New England, which focuses heavily on integration, project and place-based learning, and constructivist curriculum (just like Trillium!).

In 2012, Fawn completed her teacher training at Southwest Charter School, interning with the Middle School program, which focuses on place-based education. She remains passionate about getting students outdoors and out into the community, using the school’s local neighborhood as a classroom.
