Beth Christensen

Beth Christensen

Math Support Urban Missionary

Ever since Beth was a senior in high school, the Lord has given her a passion for the learning process and relationships that foster growth. As a student teacher in the Pittsburgh Public Schools, 25 years ago, God first used Beth’s own fear of failure to build a compassion for anxious learners. She now brings her own story of ongoing transformation along with 20 years of experience teaching math to Urban Impact. Beth’s passion for math education is fueled by the conviction that all students are created with the capacity to make sense of numbers. However, some students need intensive interventions that target their individual abilities through multisensory instruction. Her role at Urban Impact allows her to offer that hope and support to students on the North Side where she has lived for 20 years. When she is not tutoring, Beth enjoys gardening at Ballfield Farms, walking in woods with her dog and cooking nourishing meals for friends and family.
