Christa has attended Mendocino College since Fall 1994 and plans to graduate
after this semester with a degree in accounting. When speaking about her
experiences at Mendocino College and tutoring she said "Mendocino College
is a great school to get back into the educational world and to get your
feet wet. It offers a good background for getting a job or for transferring."
She also stated, "I find that tutoring is very helpful in keeping me
fresh in the classes I have finished, and in putting my newly acquired skills
to use so that I do not forget what I have learned." After graduation
Christa is not sure if she will transfer to a four-year college or go to
work locally in the accounting field.
Christa has lived in Mendocino County for twelve years, after coming here
from Orange County when she was in the seventh grade. She remarks that it
was a very large adjustment coming to a small town but now she is glad of
the move. Besides tutoring at Mendocino College and being a full-time student,
Christa is a single mother of two little girls: Courtney who is five and
Cara who is three. When asked what she does for fun, Christa said that she
enjoys reading and relaxing at home.
