Christina Eichelkraut

Balsz School Board

Christina has lived in Arizona for the past 12 years. Her passion for public education and thriving school districts stems from her experience as a community print journalist in Nevada and Arizona. During the Great Recession, she covered urban and rural school districts and saw firsthand how communities suffer when public schools shutter due to lack of enrollment and funding. These experiences led her to become an active participant in the Balsz School District. She has canvassed for overrides, ranted at the podium during meetings but always makes it a point to listen to and learn from district teachers, parents and staff – who are, after all, also her neighbors, too. In 2014, Christina fully transitioned from print journalism into digital communications consulting for many Valley small- and medium businesses, as well as nonprofit organizations. Christina was appointed to the Balsz School Board in 2021.
