TEACHER OF THE YEAR
Christina Curry – School 5
Ms. Curry is a graduate of Cabrini University in Radnor PA, where she majored in Elementary Education in 2008. Lindenwold Schools have had a large part of her journey to become an educator. As a college student, Ms. Curry would come home weekly and volunteer when her mom was a Kindergarten Teacher at School 5. Working with her mom and fellow teachers at School 5, she knew this was where she was destined to be.
In 2009, Ms. Curry was hired as a First Grade Teacher at School 4. She was a First Grade Teacher until 2013 and then moved to Kindergarten. In 2016, Ms. Curry moved into Basic Skills at School 5. Through this role, she has been able to enjoy two of her favorite subjects: Reading and Writing. As the First Grade Basic Skills Teacher, she is able to share her love of these two subjects with her students and co-workers.
Throughout her years, Lindenwold has become a second home. She has worked with such amazing teachers, administration and support staff. She is also lucky enough to work in the same building as my brother. So as one could say “Lindenwold runs in her family’s blood.” She has so blessed for the years she has had in Lindenwold and she looks forward to the years ahead.
