Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Monique Christiansen

Welcome! I am so happy to be entering my 21st year at PJMS and my 26th year of teaching. I enjoy watching my students as they move onto high school and adulthood. I love hearing from them!



I was born and raised in North Dakota where the majority of my family still lives. I attended the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND and graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education and a minor in Psychology. I returned there and earned a Master's Degree in Learning Disabilities in 2009.  



I met my husband Curt, a lifelong Alaskan and graduate of Palmer High School, in 1999 and we were married in 2001. We have 3 children. Our children all currently attend Palmer High School. Tucker is a senior, Sawyer a sophomore, and Larkin a freshman.
