About Mrs.  Christie:  I was born and raised in Alpharetta, Georgia. I absolutely LOVE teaching!  It is all I have ever wanted to do.  My mom and grandmother were both teachers, and my mother and sister in laws are teachers too!  I have 4 amazing kiddos of my own and 20 amazing kiddos I share with you!  Trevor is 14, Jack is 13, Payton is 8 (9 on Thursday), and the craziest Aly turned 4 in June.  My husband, Kenny owns his own construction management company.   We love the beach and go to Destin as much as we possibly can!  We even lived in Panama City Beach for a few months when Aly was 6 months.  We just moved to the Chapin area at the end of June.  I am so excited to be living so close to the lake!

Teaching Background:  I began teaching in August 2006 at Benefield Elementary in Lawrenceville, GA.  I taught there until the summer of 2014.  At Benefield I taught 2nd grade, math specials k-5th, and EIP.  I taught 4th grade for 3 months in 2014 in PCB, before moving back to Georgia.  I then taught 3rd grade for 3 years at Mason Elementary in Duluth, GA.  This is my first year here at Ballentine.
