Welcome to First Grade in Room B4!

My name is Christine Kern. This is my 16th year of teaching and my third year here as part of the Salk family.  I have taught Kindergarten for 13 years, and I am so excited to be teaching First Grade again!

I graduated from DePaul University in Chicago with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing and a Minor in Advertising Art and Design. I received my Post-Baccalaureate Teaching Certification through Ottawa University here in Phoenix. My endorsements include SEI (Structured English Immersion, K-12) and Early Childhood.

My philosophy of education is that every child can learn and succeed. I want my students to always try to do their best by saying "I will try" instead of "I can't".  One of my favorite quotes is: "Mistakes are proof that you are trying." 

I am looking forward to another fun and fabulous year in First Grade. 

Go Scorpions!  Soar with Success!
