Mrs. Christine Skellinger
Welcome to 2nd Grade!
“Today is a GREAT day to LEARN something NEW!” I am excited to begin a new school year and embark on a 2nd grade adventure with my students!
My name is Christine Skellinger and I have been teaching at Allenwood School for over 20 years. I have my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and my Masters Degree in School Counseling. I began my career in 5th grade and have also taught 3rd and 4th grades. I love teaching 2nd grade because it is a year of incredible growth. Second graders grow into independent thinkers and curious learners!
I currently live in West Long Branch with my husband, Greg, my 12 year old daughter, Mady and my 10 year old son, Nathan. We recently welcomed a Mini-Goldendoodle puppy named Oliver (“Ollie”) to our family. Ollie sure keeps us plenty busy with his adorable (and naughty) puppy antics.
In my free time I love to go to the beach and relax with a good book! Very often you will find me at a sporting event or dance competition cheering on my children!
I am blessed to be a part of the Allenwood Family and honored to work with our students and families!
