Mrs. Christina Varughese
Welcome to the 2018 -2019 school year! I'm very excited to be starting my 12th year of teaching as an ESL teacher at NRJH. I have previously taught 4th grade Math and Science in Michigan and ESL at the Junior High level in Dallas.
I graduated with my Bachelors from Oakland University in Michigan and my Masters in Bicultural and Bilingual Education with concentration in ESL from Wayne State University in Michigan. I am orginially from India and moved to the U.S. at the age of 14. I can speak 2 Indian languages, which are Malayalam and Hindi.
I've always been so fascinated to learn about different cultures and languages and I absolutely love working with ESL students because they teach me so much! I'm humbled to serve my students this school year and I would do my best to help them acquire English and assimilate to the new culture. I'm proud to be part of the NRJH family and I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year.
