Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Christy Bakke. I grew up in Spring Valley and have lived in East County my entire life. I currently live in El Cajon. I received my BA and teaching credential from SDSU. I went on to get my Master’s degree from National University. I previously taught at Hill Creek, Rio Seco, and Chet Harritt in the Santee School District. This is my first year teaching at Pepper Drive. I am excited about teaching first grade! My daughter, Dana, attended school at Pepper Drive, and is now a sophomore at Minerva college. My son, Garrett, is a junior at Granite Hills High School, and my youngest daughter, Claire, is a freshman at Granite. My husband, Victor, and I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, camping, and spending time with our family. Our animal family includes a Haflinger horse, Gator, a black lab mix, Cassie, and two chickens, Penguin and Chicken Bach Bach.
