Christine Marsh
2016 AEF™ Teacher of the Year 


Christine Marsh has been teaching at the same school from which she graduated for 23 years and has taught almost every class that is available for English Language Arts students. She still thinks she has the best job in the world and is passionate about her students' success-whether that success is academic or personal. When she's not teaching, she is spending time with her sons, running, reading, volunteering at her church, or writing--specifically for AzK12 Center, where she's part of a blogging platform called "Stories from School." She's also very involved in local politics and meets and speaks regularly with state legislators about issues impacting education. Her heart is in the classroom, though, teaching her students to read and write with breadth and depth.
