Welcome to first grade!
My name is Christie Register and I am excited to share this year with your child!
I live in Allen with my husband Clay and our three children; Hayley is 12, Cohen is 10, and Charley is 4. Our two dogs, Scout and Cocoa, have big personalities and like to think that they are in charge. Many years ago (ha!) I graduated from Texas State University, and went on to work as a Recreational Therapist. I spent ten years working in various therapeutic settings with patients recovering from traumatic injuries, as well as patients with developmental delays/disabilities. A huge part of my job was providing patient education, which helped me realize my love and true passion in teaching.
I began my teaching career in 2011. I have taught and served many different grade levels, from 9th grade to kindergarten. I've always felt that first grade is a magical year for students. I love to see them begin to show deeper levels of understanding (lots of a-ha's!) as they learn to apply all of the foundational skills learned in kindergarten.
I absolutely love my job, and I can't wait to work with you and your student this year!!!
