A teacher for 17 years, Chrissy enjoys working with students in English and journalism at Yorktown High School in Arlington, Va. As a journalism teacher she has worked with her student staff to adjust from print to online, bringing the student voice into the 21st century. Chrissy received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from George Mason University. A proud Patriot, she connected to an international community there and developed her love of writing. As part of Patriot Nation, she travelled to Indianapolis in 2006 to watch the Cinderella team head to the Final Four. (Florida continues to be her least favorite team.) No English teacher has loads of free time to during the school year, but when she can, Chrissy loves to see live music in DC. Summers on the beach and travel to different countries also are favorites of hers. Chrissy is excited to return to Mason for her second WJMC and can’t wait to meet new friends this summer!
