Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Christy Binkley
Hello! My name is Christy Binkley, and I'm very excited to be teaching 4th grade here at East Elementary! This is my second year teaching, and my first year in 4th grade. I'm originally from Tennessee, but my family recently moved here from Colorado, where I taught 2nd grade. I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Austin Peay State University in 2015, where I graduated as a Tennessee Board of Regents Ready to Teach Scholar and served as an officer in multiple campus organizations.
I believe that learning starts with a strong classroom community, so it is my priority to build a trusting, caring environment where everyone feels safe and respected.
We recently moved to the area because my husband serves as a drill sergeant in the army. We have two little boys in first grade and pre-kindergarten that keep us very busy with sports and hobbies! Most of our time is spent outdoors hiking with our two dogs, biking, swimming, and traveling.
Communication is important to me as a parent and a teacher. I will call and/or email you with information about our class and your student when necessary. This is going to be a wonderful year, and I truly look forward to working with you and your family!
