Christina was nominated because of her motivation and dedication.

“Christina’s larger-than-life personality makes everything more fin,” said a fellow co-worker. “She is one of the most committed teachers I’ve ever seen. She is truly a leader in our school.”

As a leader, Christina is committed to a life of education. “Christina is always learning,” shared another co-worker. “Just recently, she completed her ESL and STEM endorsement. She is constantly looking for ways to improve her teaching skills.”

When asked how she goes above and beyond, a co-worker stated, “Christina is a fierce advocate for students with disabilities. She works hard to create a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for her students. They know they are unconditionally loved by Mrs. Magleby!”

During the Coronavirus pandemic, Christina has been fighting a personal battle of her own with cancer. “Even though she is going through chemotherapy, she continues to wear a smile on her face,” shared a staff member. “She has this special ability to make every person feel like a million bucks! Cristina is truly a gem and Provo Peaks is beyond grateful to have her.
