Christina previously worked here as a program coordinator for the PIRC grant. She worked with schools increasing parent engagement, taught workshops, facilitated Family Friendly Walkthroughs and learned so much about education, parental engagement and working with families of kids with unique needs. After her time with PIC, Tina went back to school and got a Masters in Special Education with an autism certification. She worked for 5 years in schools in Delaware and Maryland as a classroom teacher and as a special educator. Tina is coming back to PIC, in this role as a parent consultant, with this additional education, experience, and passion. Tina’s hope is that she is able to partner with families to help them find resources and supports to improve their child’s educational experiences and, ultimately, improve their lives.
Tina will be working on initiatives throughout the state but her primary focus will be on Sussex County. She grew up in Sussex County and graduated from Sussex Central High School. She also worked in nonprofits there for many years building relationships and coaching young people at the beginning of their careers. Tina is excited to work with many of the people that she grew up with and went to school with as they are now teachers, administrators, and parents in Sussex County. An important focus of Tina’s in the next few months, is to increase PICs visibility in Sussex County so that more families and children can benefit from our services.
When Tina is not at work, she is living an awesome life with her 5 children and menagerie of animals. Tina’s children also are unique individuals with special needs and as their parent she is an ardent advocate for their needs as well.
