My name is Christy Cortez and I am a new 4th grade teacher at St. Mary Magdalen this year! I graduated from Washington State University with a major in Elementary Education and an emphasis in Elementary Science. I am also currently in the process of earning my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Environmental Science. This is my 5th year teaching in the primary grades, I have previously taught both the 3rd and 5th grades. I have 3 kids of my own, a 7 year old who just began 1st grade this year, a 5 year old in Kindergarten, and a 1 year old, whom I spent my time with last year at home. I am so excited to be here and am looking forward to a wonderful year!
