Meet Mrs. Bainbridge

Room 108Riverside Elementary Schoolphone coming soon!

Welcome!  I am Christina Bainbridge and I will be your child's teacher for the upcoming
 school year!  I am a 2004 graduate of Western Michigan University and have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with minors in English, science, and mathematics.  In 2009, I received my Master's Degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy from Marygrove College in Detroit.

In my teaching career, which began in 2004, I have taught preschool, second grade, and a first/second grade split class.  I am so excited to begin a new adventure teaching 3rd grade English Language Arts this school year... and super excited to be joining an amazing building in Constantine!  My husband, Dustin, and I live in Centreville with our two dog sons, Sam and Squeaks!

Mrs. Bainbridge's Favorite Things


Movie:  I love all things Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea.  My favorite actor is Morgan Freeman.

  I love music and have so many favorite songs!  If you looked at the CDs in my vehicle, you'd see that I'm currently listening to an array of musical soundtracks and John Legend!

TV Show:
  I love The Office, 30 Rock, and enjoy watching true crime shows on Investigation Discovery.

  I love to read and this list of "favorites" is always growing!  Some of my all-time favorite reads are To Kill a Mocking Bird, the Harry Potter series (#6 is my favorite!), the "City of..." trilogy by Cassanrda Clare, The Help by Kathryn Stockett, and The Glory Field by Walter Dean Myers.

Things I collect: 
I collect snowflake Christmas ornaments and I love Rudolph!  I have a big Rudolph collection that comes out at Christmas, which is my favorite holiday.  My friends and I take an annual pilgrimage to Frankenmuth every year to shop at Bronner's (the world's largest Christmas store) and eat their tasty chicken.  I even bring my students back some chocolate cheese!

 I love popcorn, asparagus, dark chocolate, and lima beans... not together, of course!

  I love to read, scrapbook, spend time with friends and family, and work on my website.  I am also a HUGE musical lover!  I've seen Wicked, Spam-a-Lot, Hairspray, Rent (3 times... once with the two original leads!), Stomp, The Wizard of Oz, Phantom of the Opera, The Producers, Beauty and the Beast, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, West Side Story, Legally Blonde, The Color Purple, Cats, Mary Poppins, Drum Line, Fiddler on the Roof, The Blue Man Group, Rent again (for the fifth time, Memphis, Wicked, Young Frankenstien, Jersey Boys, My Fair Lady, Spam-a-Lot, In the Heights, Rock of Ages... and I'm sure there are others I have forgotten to list... I love musicals!!!!
