Christina Kandukuri

My name is Christina Kandukuri. I grew up in southern Middle Tennessee and attended Middle Tennessee State University for my undergraduate and graduate degree. I have a Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies with a license to teach Kindergarten-Sixth Grade and a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I am about to begin my tenth year as an educator, and I could not imagine having another profession.

My family and I reside in Spring Hill. My husband, Aditya, and I have been married for almost three years, and our son, Ari, will be one in September. We have a precious schnoodle, Collins, and a grouchy but loving orange cat named Lillian.
While I am not at school or working on professional learning, I love cooking and baking delicious treats, vegetable gardening, spending time with my family, and reading. I adore my Joseph Brown family and feel honored to be part of the faculty.

I am so excited to be a part of JBES! My family and I are new to Tennessee, we look forward to making it our forever home. I have been married for 17 years to Michael Rigney. We have two beautiful children, Zoe and Zander. We love the outdoors, DIY projects and just spending time together as a family.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I have six years experience teaching at the lower elementary level. I look forward to growing with the JBES family and the surrounding community!
