MGMS TEACHER spotlightNov 10, 2023 10:45AM ● By Verlene Johnson
Christina Wallace grew up in Midvale until the age of 13 when she moved to West Bountiful. After graduating from Viewmont High School, she spent a short time at Dixie University before getting married after which she attended Weber State University until she took some time off to raise her family. Once her children were in school, she returned to WSU where she pursued a bachelor’s degree in special education.
Wallace is currently in her second year at Mountain Green Middle School where she is a SPED teacher for fifth grade.
“I love to see students recognize their own abilities and strengths,” Wallace said. “There is nothing better than when a student feels proud of their own hard work and can see the growth that came from their efforts.”
Wallace has been married to her husband Jeremy for 27 years. Together they have five children. Savannah is graduating with a bachelor's in psychology with plans to study marriage and family therapy in grad school; Alex is serving in the US Army as an infantryman. Micah is studying Business Administration at WSU; Grayson is a junior at Morgan High School and Charlie is in eighth grade at MGMS.
After moving around the country, living in Arkansas, Virginia, and Chicago, the Wallaces moved back to Utah 13 years ago, landing in Mountain Green.
In her spare time, Wallace likes to spend time in nature, hiking, mountain biking, rowing her husband's drift boat, traveling, reading, and exercising. λ
