Pre-K - Ms. Shambarger


I am very excited to become part of the Saint Christopher School Learning Community! I come to St. Chris with over fourteen years experience in Catholic Schools and have a firm belief in the value of a Catholic Education.I am a life-long resident of New Hampshire and reside in Salem with my husband of thirty years. We have two grown children who attended Catholic Schools from Pre-School through High School. In my spare time I enjoy reading, baking, and travel. My favorite place is the beach.
