Welcome to 4th grade! My name is Christina Pasyk, and this is my fifth year teaching at Hunters Glen. I have greatly enjoyed living and teaching in Colorado for the past four years. Prior to my move, I worked as a fifth grade teacher for three years in Thornton, Illinois, just south of Chicago. I was born and raised in northwest Indiana. I attended Indiana University where I received my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. Through an overseas teaching program, I had the privilege of completing three months of my student teaching in southern Australia. Because of this experience and many others, I have had opportunities to teach in diverse classroom settings and have learned many teaching strategies and practices to best meet the needs of all my students. To expand my knowledge of educating students from different backgrounds, I am currently working on my Masters degree in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education.
Outside of school I greatly enjoy watching and playing sports. My heart lies with the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, and Indiana Hoosiers Basketball. I love to travel and explore new places. I spend much of my free time outdoors hiking, camping, and skiing.
I am thrilled to begin a new school year here!
