Christa then worked as an Instructional Facilitator in the East Ramapo School District, where she had previously been a classroom teacher. There, Christa was part of the initiative to implement focused instruction, conferring, small group instruction, as well as units of study. She has her Masters Degree in Elementary Education and her Post Masters Certificate in Literacy.

At LitLife, Christa has honed her skills in Common Core aligned curriculum design. Working with individual schools, she has developed units, lessons, and interventions to meet the needs of all student populations. These units are often a result of collaboration with teachers and administration and are customized based on data.  She has also continued working shoulder to shoulder with teachers in the classroom to develop student centered environments that encourage children to become curious life long readers, writers, and citizens of the world. In these classrooms, Christa supports educators as they endeavor to teach individual students using multiple creative teaching methods and develop a belief that they can change the world one student at a time.
