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
