Mrs. Chrissy French
Hello! My name is Chrissy French. The 2022-2023 school year is my 23rd year as a teacher and my 18th year at Bridgeton Elementary School. I have taught in a variety of settings including Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and as a Title I teacher.
In 1995, I graduated from Colby-Sawyer College, in New Hampshire, with a Bachelor's Degree in Child Study. I also received my Teaching Certificate at the same time. I later went on to receive my Reading Certification and a Master's Degree in Math Education from East Carolina University in 2009. The following year, I gained my National Boards Certification as well. I feel so blessed to be able to use all that I have learned to help your child become the best Second Grader they can be!
As you can tell from where I went to college, I'm not originally from around these parts. I was born and raised in Massachusetts. My mother is originally from Havelock, NC. So, when my father retired they decided to move down south and my mother came 'home again.' I decided to follow them down after I graduated. It was the best decision I have ever made! A few years later, I met my husband, Allen French, who is a hometown boy. Allen was born and raised and has lived all his life right here in Bridgeton. It has become my home as well.
We have two children. Travis is 28 years old and a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Kathryn is 23 years old and is a graduate of East Carolina University. Travis is living and working in Charlotte, NC, where he has just purchased his first home. Kathryn is working at CCHC in New Bern and also purchased her first home with her new husband this past year. We are so proud of the wonderful adults they have become.
I hope this helps you get to know me a little bit. I look forward to getting to know you all a little better as well!
