Christina Salisbury - HRKids Director
We are thrilled to introduce Christina Lynn Salisbury, the heart and soul behind our Children's Department at High Rock since 2015. Christina’s journey in the world of early childhood education is nothing short of inspiring. With a rich background spanning from cheerful preschools to engaging public schools, coupled with her degree in Early Childhood Education, Christina is our go-to expert in School Age Assistance, Infant/Toddler Care, and CPR/First Aid.
At High Rock, Christina is more than a director; she's a storyteller, an innovator, and a guide who turns every day into an extraordinary learning experience for our young ones. Her approach weaves together expertise and imagination, creating an environment where children thrive both intellectually and emotionally.
Outside the halls of High Rock, Christina’s life is a vibrant tapestry of hobbies and community involvement. Whether she's mastering the art of couponing, creating whimsical diaper cakes, or lending a hand in church activities and her husband’s business, Christina embodies a spirit of creativity and community service. And for a fun twist, she has a unique quirk: she sneezes when she’s hungry – a charming little mystery that makes Christina all the more endearing.
Join us in celebrating Christina Salisbury, a true gem in our High Rock family, whose dedication, creativity, and warm spirit enrich the lives of everyone around her.
