My name is Christina Gurka and I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher this year! This is my second year here at Seele & I love being a part of the Unicorn family.
I have been a teacher for 18 years in Chicago, San Antonio, & New Braunfels. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Southeast Missouri State University and a Masters Degree in Special Education from Lewis University. I have certifications is Early Childhood - 4, Special Education K-12, and ESL. I taught special education for 4 years in Chicago before moving to Texas. In Texas, I taught at the same school in North East ISD in San Antonio for 13 years. I taught special ed in all grade levels for 8 years, kindergarten for 4 years, and second grade for 2 years. I'm so excited to be teaching 2nd grade again this year.
I was born and raised in Chicago (actually the suburb, Elk Grove Village) where I met my husband, got married, and moved down to San Antonio. My family quickly followed and now my parents live across the street from me!
I have been married to my amazing husband Mike for 15 years and I have two beautiful girls (Mackenzie who is starting 5th grade and Kyleigh who is starting 3rd grade). I have two dogs (Wrigley and Santo) and I am a huge sports fan (Go Cubs, Go Bears, Go Spurs, Go Unicorns)!
