Christina Berrell

Hello,

I'm Christina Berrell

South Seattle/Olympia
Yearbook Representative

My Story

As a former K-12 and college English and Art teacher, and professional graphic designer, I work exceptionally well with students and teachers from various backgrounds and skill levels. I graduated first in my class while earning all three of my college degrees, including a bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing, a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design Education, and a master’s degree in Teaching.

With more than 10 years of experience in the graphic design, printing, and education fields, I am always happy to teach in-class lessons as well as provide hands-on training in advanced features such as Augmented Reality. As your local representative, I meet frequently with advisers, staff, and administrators to exceed the needs and desires of the district.

I can also provide frequent training on technology, design trends, and lessons on the efficient use of yearbook tools, technology, and curriculum. Whether it be providing instruction and ideas on marketing, sales tracking, budgeting, staff recruiting, or tips for distribution day, I will be with you each step of the way, ensuring your yearbook experience is both educational and enjoyable.

What People Are Saying...

Being a yearbook adviser can be a lonely, rocky job, yet with Christina, you might never know it. She provides instant assistance, she visits often, and is quick with the funny memes when the chips seem down. Truly, she’ll make sure we have what it takes to make the best book we can. I personally look forward to seeing our book for the 2020-21 school year. It will be our new, best book ever!

(Christina) has gone over and above to meet our needs. She is a “hands on” representative and is easily accessible when needed. There is a team of fabulous people who work together to meet all of our yearbook needs. Christina is dedicated to her customers. She texts, calls or sends emails to check in on a regular basis. I have called, emailed or texted her and she responds immediately. I have never waited a full day for her to respond. She has quick solutions for any questions and will be an advocate if someone else’s expertise is required. I cannot express how much I enjoy working with her. Her integrity and excellence is much appreciated. She follows through with all she says she will do. She is upbeat and friendly and a pleasure to be around.
