While her immediate goal is to fill a need for qualified teachers and to elevate the education of young people in grades 7-12, Christina’s long-term goal is to work at the policy level, advocating for educational and social change. She wants to address the pressing issues of inequity within our educational system and participate in finding solutions that benefit students from all walks of life.
Christina is especially passionate about holistic education, an approach that emphasizes identity by engaging every aspect of the learner including mind, body and spirit. This movement embraces humanitarian principles, placing significance on individual growth and learning processes, as well as defining how one is interconnected to the larger whole, such as their local community to the entire world.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”-Albert Einstein
