Personal Statement

Christine holds a B.A. in Mathematics from Fordham University and an M.A. in Education from the University of Saint Joseph. She taught middle school mathematics and has tutored middle and high school students for the last twenty years, including SAT and ACT preparation. Her favorite and more recent teaching posts have been coaching an Odyssey of the Mind team and teaching a Creative Thinking Circle where her students engage in creative, critical, and divergent thinking.

Christine’s strengths lie in her ability to explain the subject matter well and with enthusiasm. She can give solid, real life examples and relate the material to her students’ lives. She asks probing questions to allow students to come to a solution on their own and reinforces the idea that making errors is the normal part of the learning process. She is hard-working, dedicated, willing to learn, and able to bring learning to life. Christine enjoys homeschooling three of her four children, spending time with her large extended family, doing puzzles, and exploring the outdoors.
