As another parent noted, my daughter has also been blessed with having Mrs. Robertson as a teacher- only for 1st grade this year. We moved to Frisco at the beginning of October, and Mrs. Robertson welcomed her into her classroom with the widest open arms. She has such patience, and her easy-going attitude made the switch to a new school so much less stressful on all of us! And I can not tell you how much my daughter has learned since joining her class- We could not be happier!! We love Christie, and we love Mrs. Roberston!

I would like to say a few word about one special teacher Mrs. Robertson. She is an example of what a teacher should be. She [taught] my daughter in 3rd grade and she [brought out] the best in her. Her patience with her students and her commmitment to the kids is exceptional. Mrs. Robertson is the most outstanding teacher and Christie Elementary is lucky to have her. Hopefully my youngest daughter will have her next year.
