Mrs. Christy James
4th Grade Team Leader
Experience: This is my 18th year in PISD. I have previously taught 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades and loved every single one of them! Reading is my passion, and I enjoy integrating science concepts into our curriculum, as well.
Background: I grew up attending Plano schools before attending the University of Texas at Austin. I couldn’t wait to get back to PISD to start my career in the same place I grew up!
Interests: I love spending time with my friends and my family. I have twin girls who attend Murphy Middle School, and a fifth-grade boy who attends Hunt! I enjoy reading and visiting the beach in Florida in my spare time, and love to relax anyway I can! I also enjoy my time spent on working on my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration.
