Ms. Christina Spontaneo

Educators have the opportunity to make a huge impact on students, but with that opportunity comes many challenges. Where can teachers turn for support?

This school year, I began my fourth year as a district-wide instructional coach for Jamestown Public Schools. Prior to taking on this role, I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades at Samuel G. Love School. I started my work in education many years ago as a paraprofessional at Jefferson Middle School. It was then that I discovered my passion for working with children.

The experiences I have had over the past 26 years, have given me tremendous joy and provided me with keen insights into the struggles faced by teachers on a daily basis.
