Our Staff

Our excellent teams of Preschool Teachers are specialists in Early Childhood Education (ECE) with undergraduate and graduate degrees in education and certificates in ECE. They always work with the parents to ensure a secure and fun learning time during your child's school hours.

Christina lives in San Rafael with her husband, daughter (5yrs) and son (3yrs). She received a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education from the University of South Carolina, Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies from Union University, and a M.A. in Educational Leadership from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. She has a S.C. Educator License, Early Childhood Education Administration Certificate, and California Child Development Director Permit.  She has enjoyed 19 years of early childhood education experiences in a variety of environments which have fashioned her into a more passionate educator of young children. Christina became the Director at Golden Gate Academy in 2014 and continued her service to Marin families through opening GGA Kids Marin. She loves being able to witness the precious moments of a child’s smile, laughter, creativity and zeal for learning! In addition to being a mother and Preschool Owner, she loves running trails & races, reading, writing, exploring the Bay Area, and world traveling.
