A Little About Me.....
My name is Christie Klausman. I am entering my 13th year of teaching this year. I have taught a variety of grades and subject areas (more about that below). I am a mother of three boys (Carter-5, Colton-3, and Camden-1) and a wife to my wonderful husband, Jarrod. We have been married since July 4, 2009! Jarrod is also a teacher and a basketball coach (in the Hollidaysburg Area School District). We have a chocolate lab named Slugger, who is 8 years old and 120 lbs! As a family, we enjoy vacationing, going on walks/bike rides, playing at the playground, and just spending time together.
I studied at West Virginia University where I earned my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Elementary Education (May 2006).
I am certified to teach Elementary (K-6), Math (5-9), Early Childhood (Birth-PreK), and Special Education (K-12)
