Mrs. Christine Russo
Hello my name is Christine Russo. I am excited to be teaching kindergarten again this year. This will be my fourth 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 Education for 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 facilatate 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 have 3 dogs at home. My dogs names are Bailey and Bruno and the baby Daisy. In my spare time, I love to read historical fiction and dabble in photography. Most recently, I have been researching my ancestry and family tree.
I love to incorporate nature and Science into our project based learning. In the past, we have studied Antaractic, under the sea and sea animals, imaginary/mythical creatures, North pole, insects, birds in depth and space shuttles and have designed food packaging and advertising. I cant wait to see what my new class will be interested in.
