My name is Christopher Hilfigure, and I’m very fortunate to be a 4th grade teacher here at Power Ranch Elementary. I truly love what I do and I’m excited for many new adventures with these wonderful students!
I mostly grew up in California's Bay Area, where I developed a passion for all things nature. After moving to Arizona, that passion for nature has only grown! I have a wonderful wife who supports me in everything, a spunky cat named Mr. Gray, a growing collection of house plants, and an eager desire to continually learn more about the world around me. At the heart of this passion for nature is a passion for learning. I absolutely love learning as much as I can about as many things as I can.
I like to describe myself as a responsible adult with a child's imagination. One of my absolute favorite pastimes is storytelling. I love coming up with a good story, inventing new characters, giving each character a voice, and just making it as fun as I can. A few other interests that I have are exercise of all kinds, playing the guitar, reading books, and crochet. One of my favorite phrases is, "In this class, we move mountains." That is precisely what we will do.
