Mrs. Christy, Lead Teacher


Christy Lamonde moved to Texas from California in 1999 and eventually landed in Canyon Lake after marrying her husband of 8 years. She has a BA in Child Development and has worked in early childhood and school age classrooms as an educator for over 30 years. 
"My goal in working with young children is to provide them with opportunities to become curious, inventive, and   creative individuals who love learning and being active members of the classroom community. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach at the PPCP with its unique philosophy where parents are actively involved in the hands on learning process."
