Becky Christian is retiring as Kane teacher

June 3, 2012

Becky Christian can thank her husband’s passion for the outdoors for leading her to Kane where she’s had a 36-year teaching career.
Because he enjoyed hunting and fishing, Christian applied for a teaching job in Kane after graduating from Thiel College in 1976.
A native of Beaver near Pittsburgh, Christian said she had “never heard of Kane” before coming here for her first job interview after college graduation.
She learned the “next day” that she had been offered the job of kindergarten teacher at the former Clay Street Elementary School in Kane.
