About Mrs. P

Hi! I’m Christina, and I am slowly but surely working towards attaining my Master’s Certificate in Educational Technology & Media. I’m in my third class.

I am currently in my 11th year of teaching with the Regina Catholic School Division.

I graduated from the University of Regina in 2012. I grew up in Regina and attended St. Peter Elementary School and O’Neill High School. All my life, I’ve had a passion for sports and physical activity. I have a daughter who was born in December 2019 and a husband to whom I’ve been married for almost 5 years. We are expecting our second daughter at the end of August.

When I’m not teaching or involved in extra-curricular activities, I love to garden, read, bake and decorate (and eat) fancy cookies, play the guitar, and spend time at the lake during the summer months.

I decided to pursue this particular certificate for a variety of reasons. First, it was the one I felt most interested in out of the programs offered. Second, it is no secret how the world continues to evolve into an ever-connected meshing of the real and the digital. As an educator, I feel a personal and professional responsibility to be able to provide quality education in and through digital technology and media. I believe that the courses I am taking provide me with an opportunity to achieve this.

If my students were to describe me, they would probably say that I smile and laugh a lot and that I’m pretty “chill”.

Something that is central to my personal conceptualization of pedagogy is this quote by Maya Angelou:

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Of course my goal as a teacher is to help students learn and grow. But there’s far more to this than can be found in any curriculum.
