Miss Christine Tran

Hello there!

I'm so excited to be starting my third year teaching at Barksdale. It's truly an amazing school and I feel incredibly lucky to have completed my student teaching here. During that time, I had the pleasure of working with both 1st and 5th graders. It was such a rewarding experience. I'm thrilled to continue my journey as an educator here at Barksdale. Over the summer, I had the opportunity to teach summer school for Kindergarten, which was a new and enjoyable experience for me. Now, I'm heading into my second year teaching both 4th and 5th grade!

My belief in teaching is- EVERYONE CAN. I believe that if someone is willing to learn and grow, then they can accomplish it, they can succeed, and they can grow. It is my philosophy that what students are exposed to and develop when they are younger has a big impact on their developing identity and the rest of their lives. It is my mission to instill the belief that they can do whatever they set their minds to.

Just wanted to share a little bit about myself! I'm from Lewisville, Texas and I graduated from the University of North Texas with my Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Now, I'm back at UNT to pursue my master's in Educational Leadership. When I'm not busy with school, I absolutely love traveling, indulging in Pilates, and cherishing precious moments with my loved ones.
