Christy is a native Californian and graduate of the University of California at Irvine, from which she holds a degree in Performing Arts and Educational Studies. After working as the Head Educator and Volunteer and Internship Manager at a non-profit children’s museum called Pretend City, she relocated to New York City, where she earned a dual Master's Degree in Early Childhood and Special Education from New York University.
Christy has always loved New York for the musicals, the energy of the city, and the people. In addition to teaching, her passions include dancing, performing, volunteering and traveling to new places. She also works at a dance studio in Park Slope, where she loves teaching tap.
Christy is thrilled to be the Literacy Teacher at CHP, where she strives to inspire learning through play. She has always loved to dance, learn, and play and is most passionate about sharing her joy with the little ones and helping them discover the love of learning.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” ~Mr. Rogers
