Part-Day and Full-Day Assistant Teacher

Christine Bullock

Hello! My name is Christine Bullock also known as, "Miss Chris" to the children. I am the new Full-Day PM Lead Teacher for both the 2's & 3's and Pre-K classes.

This year has brought many new challenges to all, including my family. I was working as a Care/Companion for the Senior Citizen community however, we needed to make adjustments due to the ever-changing school situations for our children. When I saw the need for teachers at the pre-school, I just knew this would be a great place to serve while also working around my children's schedules! My youngest son attended ALPS last year, so I was already familiar with some of the teachers and the Pre-school.

I am so excited for this new opportunity to be a part of ALPS. I am no stranger to childcare / Pre-school education. I originally went to college to become and early childhood educator. Marriage and children quickly became my top priority though, so I put my degree on hold for a while.

It is still my goal to complete that chapter of my life and earn my degree. I had my own in-home daycare for over 8 years and was blessed to not only take care of my own children but those of our friends.

My husband C.J. and I will celebrate our 20th Anniversary this March. He is my high school sweetheart and we have been together for over 26 years! We have 3 children, James, who is 17 and DRIVING... AHHH!! He is a Junior, plays football, loves art and is our comic relief. He keeps us laughing and fills the house with jokes daily. Savannah, who is 13 is in 7th grade and is SO intelligent! She amazes us with her grades and love of learning. She also loves horseback riding, BTS and her new cell phone. Peyton who is 5, just started Kindergarten this year. He loves everything about trains and says he wants to be a train engineer when he grows up. Our family loves to go camping, boating, traveling, and watching movies together. I have so many things I love about life I can't list them all but, a few that are close to my heart are Photography, Kayaking, boating, traveling and DISNEY! My sister and I are huge fans and we try to visit Walt Disney World as much as we can! (Our dad actually worked at Epcot for a few years as a singer when we were kids so we got to visit the parks for FREE!)

My upbringing was full of Faith, travel and music! Both of my parents are Christian musicians which led them to serve in many churches while I was growing up. We have lived in, Virginia; Springfield, Missouri; Arkansas; Kissimmee, Florida; Naples, Florida; Minnesota and lastly Lee's Summit. I had the privilege of learning music while experiencing our great country. God has always been at the core of our family and beliefs. Many of my personal passions are rooted in my upbringing and my hope is to share these with your children as well.

Prayers for a fun and Joy filled year!

God Bless you all.
