schools is proud to introduce its new teachers to our community. Look for a
profile on a new instructor here on a regular basis.
I am: Christen Fields and I teach third grade at Taylor
grew up in Hobbs and graduated
from Hobbs High School and later graduated from New Mexico State University.
The reason I want to teach is because I
am passionate about education and continued learning. If a day passes where
nothing is learned, it is a day wasted.
My favorite memory from my
own school days is when I was in high school and we were
tasked with using creative methods and devices to teach the rest of the class
about a novel that our group was reading. We chose to create a "trailer"
for the "movie version" of the novel.
In my spare time I like to watch
movies, play golf, read and play guitar (poorly).
My favorite book is Invisible
Monsters by Chuck Pahlanuik. It's the harrowing story of a super model who
suffers a near fatal injury that permanently damages her looks. With the help
of her new hospital buddy, Brandy Alexander, she learns that looks are not
forever nor do they bare any weight on an individual’s character.
