Mrs. Tammy Christensen

Hello! My name is Tammy Christensen. The students know me by Mrs. C since this is quicker and easier to pronounce. 

A quick biography about me: I was raised in Pennsylvania. Soon after graduating High School, I joined the Air Force and lived in Oklahoma during this time. While in the Air Force, I met my husband, Cody. After the military, we both pursued college education while living in Missouri. My husband's job afforded us the opportunity to live in several states.  It also brought us to Idaho.  I have been teaching First grade at Star Elementary for four years.

Children: I have five children; four girls and one boy. In my free time you will find me participating in my kid's activities. I serve as a leadership role in Boy Scouts Troop 100 as well as help lead the Crew 100 Venturing Crew. My family is my number one priority so I try and soak all the time I have with them!

Education: My first degree was a Bachelors of Biblical Literature (Psychology Major) from Ozark Christian College. I then attended Pittsburg State University and obtained my Master of Science and Specialist in Education in Community Counseling. I practiced as a Licensed Professional Counselor for several years. I then went back to graduate school and earned my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Greenville College. I maintain my LPC license and counsel on the side as well as teaching wonderful 1st grade students at Star Elementary. 

Hobbies: Outside of family time being my favorite hobby, I also enjoy traveling. I have been on several mission trips overseas to Haiti, Germany, Africa and India. I enjoy learning about other cultures and meeting and interacting with the people of the culture. I also enjoy traveling within the States. I love taking my kids over summer break and doing road trips accross the States. We love seeing new sights and visiting National Parks. As a family we enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, biking and just being outdoors. 

Fun Facts: I love girraffes. They are my favorite animal and I collect girraffe items. My favorite color is lime green. My favorite football team is the Pittsburgh Steelers and my favorite baseball team is the St. Louis Cardinals.
