Ms. Jennifer Christ

Hello! My name is Ms. Christ, and I am excited to be teaching at Gateway STEM High School.  This is my second year with Gateway, but my 9th year teaching.  I am a St. Louis native, and graduate of Fox High School.  I got my BFA from Truman State University in Kirksville, MO.  After returning to St. Louis, I began my teaching career and got my Masters in Teaching from Lindenwood University.  I am certified to teach k-12 Art and k-12 Spanish, and I have experience teaching at all grade levels.  Part of my family is Colombian, and I have many friends from Latin America that I speak Spanish with regularly.  I have traveled and stayed with families in Latin America as well.  Hispanic/Latino culture is one of my favorite things to teach.  

Outside of school, I enjoy latin dance (salsa, merengue, etc.), zumba, drawing, painting, spending time with family and my dog, and traveling.  I have visited Mexico on two separate occasions, Guatemala, and Spain, as well as the Bahamas.  

I am excited to bring my love of the Spanish language and culture to you in my classroom!
