Cristina Rodriguez has lived the majority of her life in Europe, moving to California with her family a little over ten years ago. Because of her upbringing Cristina is multilingual (speaking English, Spanish, French, and German). Throughout her Montessori journey, she has played a variety of integral roles in diverse Montessori settings serving children as young as 18 months through the age of 6. It was in this time that Cristina also did her Montessori education training. She has recently relocated to Portland from the Bay area.
When Cristina is not working she enjoys singing in a choir. Traveling is a passion of hers. She enjoys learning of new cultures and ways of life. Taking advantage of the regional beauty of Oregon, she has developed a new appreciation for hiking. She also enjoys gardening, baking and volunteering in an array of organizations.
Cristina is excited to become part of the MOA community and is looking forward to working collaboratively with MOA staff and families in guiding and nurturing these young children throughout their Montessori learning experience.
