My name is Christine. I am a Ravenclaw 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, paraprofessional and now admin assistant. This is my 4th year at SAGE and I love being a part of the SAGE family.
Outside of SAGE Academy, I love spending time with my family and our fur babies. We enjoy kayaking, camping, scary movies, movies in the backyard along with drive-in movies in the Summer. 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; coffee/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!
