About me:  My name is Christina Nelson and I am so excited to be part of the SAVA Family. I am originally from the Sacramento Area and moved down to Southern California for college. I graduated in 2007 from UC Irvine with a BA in Psychology and Social Behavior. Soon after, I started volunteering in a classroom and it was then, that I discovered my passion for teaching! I received a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential in 2010 from CSU Northridge. Following that, I was an administrator for several years at a learning center and worked with students from kindergarten to twelfth grade. One of the reasons I joined SAVA, was that it gives me the opportunity to be able to work with my student’s one on one and provide them the attention they deserve.

Interests:  In my spare time, I love to spend time with my husband Greg of 5 years Greg, and my Shih-Tzu Molly. When I am not working, I travel as much as I can and am always planning my next trip! At home, you will usually find me reading or watching the San Francisco Giants and the 49’ers!!
