Arizona State Senate District 28
The most important thing Christine Marsh has done in her life is raise socially-responsible, noble, and honest sons. Her goal as a mother was to raise kids who could make the world a better place. Some might call this idealistic, but it is what she expects, and sees, of them everyday.
Beyond being a mother, Christine is proud to say that she has dedicated her career to being a high school English teacher. There, she viewed her classroom as a place to provide skills and knowledge in her students that will equip them to make the world a better place by being contributing, powerful members of the workforce and their communities. She has tried to challenge them to reach beyond their own comfort zones as they strive to improve their skills in reading, writing, and critical thinking.
After 25 years of being in the classroom every day, she was honored to be named Arizona’s 2016 Teacher of the year. Through that experience, she had the opportunity to travel across the state to see first-hand the issues that public schools are facing on a daily basis.
Christine is also a writer, runner, active member of her church family, education activist, friend, and daughter. Even though those roles are listed in one sentence, she takes each role very seriously and tries to contribute as much as she is blessed to gain.
