Mrs. Christine DeMarais


I am excited about beginning my 23rd year in education and my 9th at Achieve Academy! 

I earned my B.A. in English Literature from the University of North Texas and my Secondary Teaching Certification from Texas Woman’s University.  I began my career at Ford Middle School in Allen, Texas, where I taught 7th grade ELA, Leadership, PALs, Career Investigations, and Communications.  In 2014, I joined the  Achieve Academy teaching staff, and this will be my first year as the Special Education and 504 Coordinator.  I am passionate about supporting students, and I am grateful to serve in this capacity!
