Miss Christina Kjonaas is a graduate of Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences. In 2013, Miss Kjonaas joined the New Way family and has since discovered her dream career of teaching students with learning differences. She teaches an assortment of subjects throughout the day to an amazing group of first through fourth graders. Music, games, silly accents, outrageous stories, stickers, and high fives abound during her lessons. Additionally, Miss Kjonaas loves directing the fall musicals performed by our talented Lower School students.
After school and musical rehearsals, Miss Kjonaas heads to ASU to mentor college women at a campus church and through a values-based movement focused on respect. This has given Miss Kjonaas the opportunity to help plan six yearly signature events for ASU students. Napping is Miss Kjonaas’ favorite past time! She also enjoys spending time with her roommates, drinking coffee, reading, thrifting, and solving jigsaw puzzles.
