Christina Carr
Teacher

Hello, and welcome to my site!  My name is Christina Carr and I teach second grade at Junction Elementary.  This is my fifth year teaching at Junction and my thirty-second year of teaching in Roseville.  

My goal is for students to achieve their highest potential in all areas: academic, social, and emotional.  I strive to unlock their inner talents, let them know that they are special and uniquely gifted, and that they have something important to share with the world.

Let me know of ways I can support your child!

Welcome to 3rd Grade!!

 

Hello! My name is Jessica Dana (formerly Miss Joachim). I have been teaching at Junction for 4 years, and in the Roseville City School District for 8 years. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and 2 GSP pups! We like to go to the lake and play in the water or kayak! We also love to travel and visit new places. In my free time, I also love to craft and make fun projects.

Welcome to 5th Grade!

My name is Ms. Caines and this is my third year teaching 5th grade here at Junction Elementary. Although this is only my third year teaching here at Junction, I have been teaching for the last 7 years (both here in the District and in another State)! When I am not at Junction, I enjoy spending time outside adventuring or inside reading a good book. 

I can not wait to spend this school year learning and growing alongside your 5th graders. It’s going to be such a magical last year in Elementary School!
