Christine is originally from Ontario, Canada. She studied English and Visual Arts at the University of Windsor. After a summer of teaching English abroad in Italy at summer camps for children, she knew she had discovered her passion for teaching. She then went on to earn her Bachelor of Education in 2012 from the same university, and gained valuable experience practice teaching in Canadian schools in the primary and intermediate grades. She worked as a preschool teacher in Canada for three years, using the Montessori method to reach her young learners. Her love of travel and adventure led her to Sweden in 2015, where she has been teaching ever since. She has taught Art, Science, Math and English. She joined the SIS community as a Grade 1 teacher in 2018. When she is not teaching, Christine enjoys reading, painting, and visiting art exhibits at the many museums around Stockholm.
