Mrs. Christine Russo
Hello my name is Christine Russo. I am excited to be teaching kindergarten again this year. This will be my third year teaching kindergarten. I love watching all the growth at this age. It is truely an amazing time for learning. I have been teaching in the field of Early Childhood Educationfor more than 20 years. I have experience working with preschool and preschool special needs children as well. The young years are truely my passion. I want the foundation years to be a positive and exciting time to build their education foundatuion on. I try to use projects and children's interests to facialte learning.
Personally, I am married and have three children. I have two sons, Vincent and Sam and a daughter named Maria. I am an animal lover. I love learning about animals and nature and like to bring that love into my teaching. Right now I only have 2 dogs at home and our class pet hermit crab. My dogs names are Bailey and Bruno. In my spare time I love to read historical fiction and dabble in photography.
My classes love to incorporate nature and Science into our project based learning. In the past we have studied Antaractic, under the sea and sea animals, we studied birds in depth and have designed food packaging and advertising. I cant wait to see what my new class will be interested in.
