|Position:||1st Grade Teacher|
Hi, my name is Cristie Bayes-Particka and I am a First Grade Teacher at Addison Community School. I have been teaching at Addison for about 22 years!! I started my teaching career in 3rd grade, moving into a Literacy Coaching position, Kindergarten Jr. and now first grade.
My husband, Matt, and I have three kids and two grandchildren. My family is my world. I enjoy hosting our gatherings with over 30 plus loved ones. My family is a lot of fun and when we are together there is never a dull moment ☺ We enjoy camping and spending time in our pool during the summer. We have a camper that takes us away from the busy day-to-day happenings and helps us rest, relax and enjoy our time together. I love going to Ludington and spending the day on Lake Michigan.
Jennifer, our daughter is married and is a RN at Hillsdale ER. Matthew is 17 and Andrew is 16—yes they are only 15 months apart ☺. Cameron is our grandson and he turned five this year and Aleah is our granddaughter and she turned one this year. They have filled all our lives with a new wonderment and joy indescribable!!!
I try to live each day to the fullest and make the most of the life I have been given ☺
