Mrs. Fletcher

    Hello! My name is Christina Fletcher, and I am a first-grade teacher at YMES.  I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where I attended the University of Pittsburgh.  After moving to Raleigh in 2002, I attended Peace College for Elementary and Special Education.  I then began my teaching career and have been happily teaching at YMES ever since.  I began my career teaching first grade before moving to third grade.  I am thrilled to be returning to teach first graders this year. 

     I am married to my husband, Ed, and live in Raleigh with our dog, Otto. In my spare time, I love to read, take Otto for walks or runs, cook, travel, and spend time with family and friends.  Also, since I’m a Pittsburgh native, I am a huge sports fan, including the Steelers, Pirates, Penguins, and Pitt Panthers.  Some of my favorite treats include dark chocolate, gummy bears, and blow pops.  Some of my favorite places include Starbucks and Target.   

     I love teaching at YMES.  Our staff and students are the absolute best!
