Hi! My name is Christine Ota. I am so excited to be a part of Lighthouse Charter School.
I grew up in a small town in Southern California and moved to Davis to attend UC Davis and study design. While attending UC Davis, I took up a part time job coaching gymnastics. In my years coaching gymnastics, I realized my passion for child development and education and decided to pursue a career in education.
During my time as a student teacher, I worked closely with a kindergarten program that showed the absolute joy of Kindergarten. My goal as a teacher is to develop a passion for learning and help my students create a life-long love for knowledge. I want my classroom to be a place of comfort and excitement where student feel confident in being themselves and growing together.
I am so honored to be working with Lighthouse Charter School and their excellent team of teachers and staff! I look forward to meeting everyone and making Lighthouse my new home!
