Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Christine Tongay
Welcome to the Clifford Room!
My name is Christine Tongay. I am beginning my 17th year of teaching and have been with St. Louis Public Schools my entire teaching career. I began my relationship with SLPS during my practicum, continued with student teaching and then on to teaching. I graduated from University of Missouri St. Louis with a B.S. in Education with certification in Early Childhood. I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade and currently preschool. I feel that a child's social/emotional well being is above all else always, especially in the early stages of learning. I enjoy working with families and setting the foundation for a child's school career.
I am an avid scrapbooker, enjoy reading, working out, traveling, cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues, and most importantly, spending time with my family, friends and granddogs.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year, making the very best of this most unusual time.
