Ms. Gonzalez

Hello! My name is Chrystine González, and I have been with Canyon Rim Academy since it opened in 2007. I am proud to teach 4th grade at this wonderful school! I have taught for several years in Nevada and Utah, mainly second through fourth grades.Fourth grade is definitely my favorite! I enjoy teaching all the school subjects, but my favorite times of the school day are Math and Reading Aloud. Our Core Knowledge novels are the best! I enjoy reading, journal writing, hiking, arts/crafts, learning Spanish, playing games, and taking line dance and Zumba fitness classes. I love being a mom to my cats who are full of personality and teach me how to relax and enjoy life. Each year at Canyon Rim gets better and better! We have the most amazing students, teachers, and administrators.I am grateful to teach at this spectacular school.

Since field trips are not currently available due to Covid19, here are some links that you might be interested in. They are not all geared for 4th grade, although some do follow 4th grade curriculum. They are educational and could be fun for kids and their siblings.
