Christene Sunding

Room 16
Grade 7-8
Ext. 416
Mrs. Sunding received her B.S in Geology from California State University, Chico in 1997 and her multiple subject teaching credential, with a science supplement, in 1998. Since then she has worked as an Environmental Geologist for three years and as a classroom teacher for a total of eight years. She has lived in the area since 2000 with her husband and two children (whom are also Bulldogs!).  Some of her favorite things to do are camping, traveling and visiting science museums. 
Mrs. Sunding loves all things science! She has a true passion for bringing science and technology to Colfax Elementary. She was thrilled to bring STEM classes to C.E.S. last year and is looking to further expand STEM opportunities for our students at all grade levels. 
Mrs. Sunding's classes are almost 100% paper free and all coursework is accessed online through google classroom. We have estimated that by going paper free, our class alone, saves almost and entire tree each month.
