About the Teacher

  • Christina Tenio-Salas



    Mrs. Christina Relloque-Salas (I prefer to be called Mrs. Salas). I was part of the first graudating class of Bear Creek High School in 1993 and I attended Delta College before transferring to University of the Pacific. In 2005 I received a B.A. in Social Sciences and a year later received a Master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction. In March 2013, I earned another Master's degree in TESOL (Teachers of English to Students of Other Languages).
    In my free time (which isn't often), Mrs. Salas enjoys traveling with her Best Friend/husband & children, cooking, listening to music (mostly Gospel), studying Scripture from the Bible, scrapbooking, researching family history. 
    I have four children- Mikey, Nick, Brianna, & Daniel and love attending their sports games and extracurricular activities. I enjoy helping the elderly in my family (usually on Sundays) and researching new activities/lessons to really engage students.
    I decided to become a teacher because I wanted a chance to make a lot of "wrongs" right, based on my experience in the U.S. mainstream educational system. I teach social science because I'm passionate about studying the people and cultures throughout time and history.  My goal by the end of the year is to have made social science something my students actually enjoyed learning as much as I do!
