Andrew Christopher joined Oaks Christian in 2017 after seven years teaching film and live television production in Washington state. During that time, he developed new courses in documentary and feature film, and was awarded Most Outstanding Teacher in 2015 at the International School of Communications.

After completing his bachelors in media communication with an emphasis in performance, and a Spanish degree from Asbury University in Kentucky, he went on to be a sports anchor and reporter for two local television stations.

He is thrilled to join a growing film program at Oaks Christian, expanding into the middle school for the first time. He teaches two Introduction to film courses at the middle school, and film one through four at the high school. He has a passion for storytelling, and loves to empower students to discover their potential as filmmakers and students.
