Miss Tristin

Miss Tristin is so excited to teach your little ones this year! She grew up in Huntington Beach and graduated from Marina high school. From there she earned her Early Childhood Education degree at Orange Coast College and is currently enrolled in the bachelors’ program at the University of Cincinnati. For the past two years, she has been a substitute at Surf City Christian and has loved every minute of it. She was drawn to Surf City Christian because of their faith-based curriculum and their dedication to children and families. Since the first grade she has dreamed of being an educator and is so blessed to be given the opportunity to start her teaching journey here. Besides her passion for early childhood education, she loves to go to the beach, spend time with family, and go hiking. She recently got engaged, so much of her free time involves wedding planning. She is looking forward to a great year!
