Christine is excited for another great year at Ben Franklin Academy as the seventh-grade science teacher. Christine has taught middle school for 19 years. She received both her BA in Psychology and her Teaching License from CU Boulder and her MA in Education Administration & Supervision from the University of Phoenix.
