Mrs. Christie Arnold
Welcome to 8th grade U.S. History!!!! I am looking forward to building strong relationships with our kiddos; it's my favorite aspect of teaching. I want them to feel a true sense of connection & community with our class.
I feel strongly that my job is to help ensure our students are informed, engaged, and productive citizens of the world. I think as a history teacher I have been tasked with the responsibility of teaching students to ask the "bigger picture" questions. My goal is to pique student interest enough that they go seeking the answers to their questions; when they have the answers they seek, they use that knowledge to make positive impacts on the world.
Something that I'd like to share about myself is I LOVE to read!! One of my missions in life has been to build other lifelong readers, and I feel blessed to work on a platform that allows me to do so. In my opinion, History and Reading go hand in hand because history is knowledge passed through stories.
My husband, my two phenomenal kids and I live in Frisco. We are an active bunch and love to spend our down time traveling and hanging out together.
I would love to stay connected with you via Twitter @ArnoldChristie. I also encourage you to follow Reynolds on Twitter @PISDReynolds. #WeAreReynolds Please feel free to contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
