Ms. Christine Francis
I was born and raised in Canada, but have also lived in England for 3 years, and Russia for 2 years. I moved to NC in 1992, and in 1997 I proudly became an American citizen. A little fun fact about me was that by the time I was 14 years old I had already visited 14 countries, whoo! hoo! I like to travel!
I have had the privilege of teaching 1st grade and Kindergarten at JCE.
I have two children who have attended local schools in Onslow County since 2001. It was during the seven years I spent as a parent-volunteer (at JCE!) that I became interested in pursuing my elementary education degree. I received my Associates of Arts degree at CCCC and my Bachelor of Arts, Elementary Education degree at UNCW.
