About Mrs. Tanner

Hello!  My name is Christine Tanner and I am so excited to be part of the 2019-2020 Estes Elementary Kindergarten team!  Most importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher!  It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us!  I’m so excited to learn all about you this year, but first I am going to tell you a few things about me! 

I was born and raised in Morehead City, NC and can say without a doubt that I will always be a beach girl at heart!  I am the youngest of three.  I have two older brothers and love them very much!  When I graduated high school, I moved to Raleigh to attend North Carolina State University.  Go Pack!!!  While at NC State, I met my husband, Townsend, and majored in design.  After graduating from NC State I went to Graduate School at East Carolina University to get my Masters of Arts in Teaching! 

I taught Kindergarten in Raleigh at Smith Magnet Elementary for 4 years before moving to Asheville 5 years ago where I taught at Claxton Elementary for 3 years before starting teaching at Estes in August of 2017!  This will be my 10th year teaching kindergarten and I couldn’t imagine teaching any other grade!  I’m very excited about teaching at Estes, but mostly I am over the moon excited about being your teacher!
