My name is Christine and I’ve been working with kids in various positions for the last 25 years. I have been a nanny, a preschool teacher, chemical dependency technician, youth counselor and paraprofessional. This is my second year at SAGE, I started after Christmas last year.
I love spending time with my family and my zoo. I have way too many pets, including 3 dogs, my Manx kitties and our new little Savannah kittens. We enjoy kayaking, camping, scary movies, movies in the backyard along with drive-in movies in the summer. I am most definitely a Harry Potter fan and a Ravenclaw. We are rarely home during the Halloween season at my house, too many haunted houses and pumpkin patches to go to. Winter is all about Hygge; warm tea/cocoa, comfy blankets, curled up in front of the fireplace with my family...and some sledding.
I look forward to seeing all the SAGE kids this year and I hope everyone had a super amazing Summer!
Hello, I am Amanda and I work with our students at SAGE as a Special Education Paraprofessional.
I earned my B.S. degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. In addition to my academic background in science, I have also taken masters-level classes in education.
Outside of the classroom, I am an avid outdoors enthusiast. I love to explore local natural areas, ID plants and animals, and am continually learning to forage for and cook wild foods. I also work at a local zoo, providing excellent care for our animals and sharing my passion for conservation with the public and the students at SAGE.
