Mrs. Christa Steene

I'm Christa Steene and I am a Cross Categorical Resource (CCR) teacher here at Joyner. I have been a Special Education Teacher since 1995 and began working at Joyner in 2009. I moved to North Carolina from New York with my family in 2008. I have three boys who keep me very busy with baseball, going swimming, and lizards! In my free time I love to read, and spend time outdoors.

My name is Lili and I am excited to start the new year at Joyner as part of the Special Education team!

I was born in Mexico but moved to Raleigh at age 7 and have been raised here since then. I graduated from UNC Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) with my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Exercise and Sport Science. I graduated from Meredith College with my Masters of Arts in Teaching degree in Special Education. Before joining the Joyner community I worked at group homes with teenagers of varying abilities to overcome all challenges. I also worked in early intervention with preschool aged students with developmental delays and taught at a full Spanish immersion preschool.

I like to stay active and enjoy hiking, running, and cycling. I love traveling and I am always looking to plan a new adventure and visit new places. During my down time I enjoy reading, cheering on the TarHeels, and watching superhero movies.
