My name is Christy Cortez and I am one of two 4th grade teachers 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 6th year teaching in the primary grades, I have previously taught both the 3rd and 5th grades. I have 3 kids of my own, an 8 year old who just began 2st grade this year, a 6 year old in Kindergarten, and a 2 year old, whom has moved up to the Toddler 2 class!
