My Bio

Hello!  My name is Christina Pjura.  I am very excited to be a part of the San Tan family again this year!

I am originally from New Jersey and attended the College of New Jersey.  There I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Psychology. I taught kindergarten for a year in New Jersey and then moved to California.  In California I taught kindergarten for another year. I moved to Arizona and taught second grade in Apache Junction for two and a half years. This will be my fourth year teaching fourth grade and San Tan.

I believe the most essential duty of teaching is to instill a desire to be lifelong learners.  I want my students to leave class everyday excited to come back tomorrow. Albert Einstein said, “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death”.  This is my personal goal, and my desire for my students, to continually learn, grow, and develop into the best possible version of ourselves we can be.
