Hello, My name is Christy Tolkinen, this will be my fourth year teaching at Ridge Point High School. I grew up in Woodbury, MN and have lived in Houston, TX for five years (and yes, I like the heat, have you ever been to MN in January?). I have a degree in Business Management from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN and a Master's in Business Management also from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN. I worked for Northwest Airlines as a Customer Service Manager for 10 years. After leaving Northwest Airlines I worked part-time while raising my children, Cole (21), Olivia (16), and Sam (11). My husband Todd and I moved to League City in 2012 and I began substitute teaching in the Clear Creek School District. I obtained a couple of long-term positions where I realized I wanted to make a career change. I felt by teaching business classes I would be able to bring both my education and experience into the classroom. In 2014 my family made the decision to move to Sienna Plantation and I was lucky enough to get hired at RPHS. In addition to teaching I am also the JV Cheer coach and the Co-sponsor/assistant for DECA. I love being a member of the Ridge Point family!!
