Instructional Literacy Coach

Hello! My name is Christi Pfaff and I am Timberlin Creek Elementary’s Instructional Literacy Coach. I was born and raised in St. Johns County and graduated from Bartram Trail High School. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Florida, my Master’s Degree in Reading from the University of South Florida and most recently a Literacy Coach Endorsement through the University of Florida Literacy Institute. I have  taught for eight years at Liberty Pines Academy (3rd and 1st grades) and most recently, spent the last two years as a District Clinical Educator Mentor, supporting and coaching new teachers at all grade levels throughout our school district. My husband and I have three beautiful children. When I’m not at school, I enjoy camping, crafting, taking family excursions to Sea World, going to Jacksonville Jaguar games (we are 10-year season ticket holders), and going out to breakfast as a family on the weekends.

As an educator, I value the importance of building relationships among teachers and students to help them grow and realize their utmost potential. Through consistency, collaboration, and the use of evidence-based strategies, we can work together as a team to help our students achieve academic growth throughout the school year.

While I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher first when you have a concern, know that you can reach out to me with any questions regarding literacy instruction, interventions, remediation, enrichment, curriculum, or your child’s academic growth. I’m always happy to assist. I believe working together, we can make the home/school communication an open door to your child’s success both in and out of the classroom!

Working together,

Christi Pfaff
