Hawkins, Christina (Spanish)


Our Class Community

This is my fourth year teaching at Nesbitt Discovery Academy. I love being a part of the NDA family. I currently teach Spanish 1, 2, and 3. My class is hard to describe, and it truly is something that needs to be experienced! My students are up and out of their seats every day, and we utilize a desk-less classroom. Spanish is, of course, a necessity in the room. Our goal is to learn another language through building connections with each other in a hands-on, energetic, student-centered classroom. 

About Me

In 2013, I received my B.A. in Spanish from UNC-Asheville. During my time at UNCA, I studied abroad in Costa Rica and lived in Seville, Spain. The summer before my first year of teaching, I worked in an orphanage in La Paz, Bolivia. I have also spent time in Italy and Ireland. I am a native to Haywood County, and after traveling around the world, I have decided that there is no better place to live! 

In my free time, I enjoy exercising and sitting on my porch drinking coffee. Most importantly, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons. Together, we enjoy cooking, camping, and spending time with friends and family.
