ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – On February 11th, 2023, Troy School District Teacher Christine Woodward died in a two car wreck off of Aumick Road, and Ritz Road in Sullivan Township Pennsylvania.

Police will only say it was a head on crash but are not yet saying who was at fault.

She is described by Coworkers and friends as a beloved Mother, Friend, Teacher and Community member.

Troy Schools Superintendent Dr. Janilyn Elias says ” To say that she’ll be missed is an understatement. Anybody that’s talked about her has said that she has been almost a surrogate parent to everybody here.

So, when I say that she was kind and generous it was more than that. She was at games when other people couldn’t make the game and they knew that she was there. 

I know they all called her Ms. Woodward but I think that was short for mom”
