About Mrs. P

Hi! I’m Christina, and I have been slowly but surely working towards attaining my Master’s Certificate in Educational Technology & Media. I’m in my final classes this semester! Woo!

I am currently on maternity leave with my second child. Otherwise, I am in my 13th year of teaching (11th with adjusted leaves) with the Regina Catholic School Division. I’ve taught a range of middle years groups but mostly grade 7.

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, a daughter who was born in August 2023, and a husband to whom I’ve been married to since July 2018.

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.
