About Christa Garrison
I graduated from Arizona Christian University in May of 2015 with my bachelors in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English and Communications. I am a woman of many hats here at Foothills Academy. I am the lead teacher on the Washington, D.C. trip, the Technologies teacher for junior high, and I teach a semester long section of S.T.E.A.M. with the 7th graders in addition to teaching Language Arts to 7th and 8th grade. All of these activities keep me busy, and I am currently in the middle of planning my wedding, as well. Despite being so busy, I love working at Foothills Academy!

The best thing about teaching: My favorite part of teaching is the students! I love helping them understand a complex topic and seeing them take ownership for their learning.
Some of my favorite things:
- Color: Navy Blue
- Food: Hamburgers
- Book: “The Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft” by H.P. Lovecraft
- Subject: Literature
- Hobby: Hiking
- Sports Team: Dallas Cowboys
If I wasn’t a teacher, I would be: a writer
Why did you choose to become a teacher?
I chose to become a teacher so I could share a bit of my passion for Literature and hopefully inspire them in the same way my teachers inspired me.
I have traveled to China, Hong Kong, and Cebu, Philippines, to teach English as a Second Language
