Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Christina Fletcher and I am a third 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 by teaching first grade before moving to third grade.
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 hang out with family and friends. I also enjoy hanging out at the pool and beach during the summer. Some of my favorite treats include dark chocolate, gummy bears, and blow pops. Some of my favorite places include Starbucks, Target, and Belk. Also, since I’m a Pittsburgh native, I am, of course, a huge sports fan, including the Steelers, Pirates, Penguins, and Pitt Panthers.
I love teaching at YMES. Our staff and students are the absolute best! If you’re walking by my room, you might hear something such as, “Let’s roll,” when we’re on the move, or, “Quick like a bunny!” We’re busy around here!
