• Mrs. Christiaens graduated from Rocky Mountain College with a BS degree in Elementary Education, holds a Master's degree in Education from Idaho State University, and is Nationally Board Certified.  Mrs. Christiaens has taught in the Sunburst School district for the past 30 years. Teaching is still one of her lifelong passions.  
    Mrs. Christiaens loves writing, reading, riding her bike, when the wind isn't blowing, and spending time with her family in her free time.  She has one grandson, Luke Raymond, and loves spending time with him.   Her youngest daughter will be getting married this fall so it should be a fun family and friend time for her.  
    One of the top ten things she has done in life is skydiving from 10,000 feet when she turned 50. Who says you're too old for this type of adventure? One of her dreams is to run in a 1/2 marathon within the next year in memory of her husband.   She loves to cook when she has time and loves chocolate chip cookies!  So, if you are interested in finding a way to her heart, make some cookies to share with her and the class!  
    Mrs. Christiaens is free to visit with anyone who wishes to stop by or call.   She loves nothing better than good conversation with a tall latte'.    If you text her, you will always get a response unless she is out of cell range.
