Christine Benitez
Board of Directors
Principal
Crescenta Valley High School
Christine is the Principal of CVHS where she works with over 2500 families in the La Crescenta-Montrose community. She is also the Chairperson of ¡Adelante, Latinos!, an all-volunteer committee committed to supporting students k-12 in the Glendale Unified School District. 
 
Christine has worked for over 23 years in education, 16 of those years in high school administration. Her passion lies in supporting students to succeed in school. This led to her volunteer work with ¡Adelante, Latinos! in 2015 where she worked as a member learning about the committee and developed relationships with other members. In 2017 she became the chairperson and since then has expanded the mission of the committee as well as the membership. She is excited to now join the Board of Glendale Latinos Association as a way to further connect the schools with the community. 
 
Christine has been happily married to Luis Benitez since 2000. They have 3 daughters Emma, Sarah, and Lily, a son, Andres, a daughter in law, Katie, and a granddaughter, Xiomara. They enjoy taking long walks at night together with their crazy dogs Embry and Red.
