Ms. Christina Pena

Hello my name is Christina Pena. I am an EC Resource teacher at Carolina Forest International Elementary. This is my second year teaching at Carolina Forest and I have loved every moment being part of the Eagle family. I graduated in 2011 from Saint Leo University with my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I also graduated from Ashford University in 2015 with my Master’s degree in Education. Before coming to CFIES, I was a Training and Technical Assistance Specialist in the Early Childhood Field training Adult learners in and out the classroom with a large focus on School Age Care.

 I was born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia. Go Redskins!  I moved to Jacksonville, North Carolina in 2005 and now call NC my home. I have one beautiful daughter and one spoiled dog.
