Hello! My name is Christine Trude and I will be your child's math and science/social studies teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This will be my 18th year teaching and my 10th year in 5th grade. I am so excited for my second FULL year at Central Dauphin School District and my second FULL year at Tri Community Elementary!
I live nearby in Penbrook with my 15 year old son, Shaun, who will be attending Dauphin County Vo Tech this year as a sophomore working on his welding certification. We have a dog and a cat and live in a 100+ year old farm house! I enjoy cheering Shaun on in soccer and when he is in school musicals, spending time with my family (especially my nephews), reading, going to local sports events, visiting the beach, and listening to live music.
This year I am going back to school to earn my certification in Teaching English Language Learners at Shippensburg University so I will also be a student! My goal this year is to learn more about my Tri Community family, including all of you! Thank you for entrusting me with your child this school year. Please reach out with any questions or concerns. Let's make this school year AMAZING!
