Christine Baum - Teaching in India
Wednesday, June 2, 2021
My name is Christine (Christy) Baum. I am married with two sons, Alex and Nick, who are 31 and 27. My youngest son recently got married and we couldn’t be more excited to add his lovely wife, Angelina, to our family. My husband, Jerry, and I enjoy time at our cabin in northern Wisconsin when we are not busy with work. Our sons, friends, and family enjoy joining us for all of the outdoor activities and relaxing environment.
My family and I have lived in Hastings for the last 27 years, where I am in my 21st year of teaching special education. I am currently at Hastings High School, but I have taught elementary and middle school as well. I have enjoyed 30 years of teaching, and while I dream of retirement someday, I have a few years of fun left. I obtained my undergraduate degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education at Winona State University. After teaching for about 10 years, I went to St. Mary’s University and obtained a Master’s degree in Education, an Education Specialist Degree, an Education Administration Licensure, and a Director of Special Education license. I am fortunate to love what I do and enjoy my days with students and staff. The days go by fast and the years have been wonderful.
When I am not teaching or at the cabin relaxing, I enjoy traveling, shopping, walking, reading, and hanging out with family and friends.
