Christy Speirn-Smith

A nurse for 25 years, Christy returned to school to become a high school teacher where she had the great honor of working with at-risk youth.

After meeting the parents of some of her students, she began volunteering and teaching at Intercambio a year after its founding.

Christy earned a certificate from the National Coalition of Equity in Education and went on to play an integral role in creating the diversity curriculum for the Boulder Valley School District.
