Mrs. Christina Petty
I was born and raised in Annapolis, Maryland but have been in Beaufort County since 1984. I have been happily married for 25 years to Jay Petty, who is a science teacher and the head soccer coach at Southside.
We have a son (Caleb) who is married (Madison) and a daughter (Sarah). Our son and his wife are graduates of Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Our son has a bachelor’s degree in music and his wife has a bachelor’s degree in music business. Our daughter is a sophomore at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia pursuing a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in math and science and a minor in American Sign Language. She will then pursue her master’s degree in math education.
I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Math Education and later received my Master's degree in the same field from East Carolina University.
I have been teaching for 29 years in Beaufort County. I taught at the former Chocowinity High School and then moved to Southside when the school was built. I have come full circle in my career as I have started to teach my past students' children. I truly love to work with teenagers at SHS.
I am looking forward to a great year teaching our Southside students Math 1, Math 3 and Precalculus and coaching Southside athletes as the assistant soccer coach at SHS!
