Christen Fields

Hobbs 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 Elementary. 


fieldsI 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.
