Mrs. Christine Bedwell
Welcome to our school year 2019-2020. This will be an exciting year for everyone as we continue our journey into the neighborhoods and personalized learning.
I have taught for over forty years in grades K-8. No, I do not have a favorite age but adore students of all ages. I love seeing their excitement as they add something new to their repertoire of knowledge. Being a retired military wife, I have taught in 8 different states including DODDS in Germany.
My husband, Richard, and I have been married for 44 years! He retired from the army and then worked for some other companies in Virginia and Colorado before he retired from the work force. The most interesting work was when he traveled to UAE for 6 weeks, home one week, and cycled through again. We have a 42 year old son named Richard, who now lives down the road from us on Black Forest and works at the Defense Intelligence Agency. He is a total computer nerd. Our daughter Crystal lives in northern Virginia with her husband Mike (another computer nerd) and their 2 daughters. Our adorable granddaughters are Julia, who is in 7th grade and Gabby is in 5th grade. Crystal works for Booze, Allen, Hamilton and is now working at the FBI offices. I am the only one in our family without an assortment of security clearances! When we are all together, the girls and I stay in the kitchen and the others go in the family room to talk!
