2020 Christine Marsh

Christine Marsh is a Phoenician and graduate of Arizona public schools. After attending UCLA on a track scholarship, she made the decision to come back home to Phoenix, where she raised her two sons and foster children and taught English for 27 years.  After 23 years in the classroom, Christine was honored to be named Arizona’s 2016 Teacher of the Year. Through that experience, she traveled the state to see first-hand the issues that public schools face. While her experiences as a mother, teacher, and foster mother helped her to decide to run.  Her key issue is creating a more balanced Senate in order to allow good ideas from both sides of the aisle to have a fair hearing, with public input, and that will benefit all Arizonans.
