Christi Gubser has worked in and around education for most of her adult life. She earned a BA in Biology and Environmental Science from the University of Pennsylvania, a MA in Secondary Science Education from CU Boulder and her administrators license from Western State in Gunnison, CO.
She has had the opportunity to work in many different educational settings - In Delta County, she is currently the principal and Spanish teacher at NFSIS. She has also worked as a math teacher at the Crawford Montessori School in 4th, 5th and 6th grades. She worked at Vision Charter Academy as a Highly Qualified Coordinator of Science, as well as a classroom teacher. In addition, in Colorado, California and abroad, she has taught in Elementary, Middle and High Schools, both high and low income students, English Language learners, alternative school students and students in experiential education programs. Through all this experience, she has gained a tremendous amount of knowledge of how to be successful in the schools.
She believes in strong relationship with students, while being a leader and a servant to the staff of teachers and school workers. She also enjoy working alongside parents, who all ultimately want their children to be successful and happy. As a parent herself, she relates to other parents in the deep love they have for their children, and the desire that they will succeed as a positive contribution to our world.
She also loves to backpack and camp in the mountains and the desert, sing and play guitar, travel, cook, make jewelry, and hang out outdoors with her husband, three kids and her dog.
She is a multilingual, multicultural individual with many years of experience in education in and out of the school building. She is thrilled to be able to serve as the leader of the NFSIS community.
I have been in the valley for 17 years. I think this is the best place in the world to raise kids. I have 3 daughters in schools in the valley. I like to camp, hike, quilt, and look for sea glass( which is a difficult hobby to have in Colorado but I try to get to the ocean at least once a year). I love helping people, and being a secretary is a perfect way to do that. I enjoy assisting Students, Staff and Families and working to create a positive and friendly, learning environment.
