Christine has been a Montessori teacher for over 12 years.
I was born in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. There I went to the University to become an elementary teacher and also finished my Masters in Education in 1997.
When I followed my husband back to his home, the beautiful State of Washington, right after my graduation, it took about a year in Child Care before I found my perfect place of work: a Montessori classroom.
At first I co-taught in a 3 to 6 classroom, created different lesson plans and materials for Enrichment classes and taught German.
When my first child continued her Montessori routine in a 6 to 9 class, I decided to become a Montessori teacher. I received my diploma from MEIPN in Woodinville. After 12 plus years I left my old school when I had my second child.
He is now old enough to come to class himself and we are delighted to start at Creative Montessori School together! The Montessori method is a wonderful way to raise a child in a respectful and child centered manner.
We are all individuals and deserve to be treated and understood as such. I am excited to be a supportive part of this process and always strive to create a loving and caring environment for children.
In my free time I love to garden, swim and downhill ski. I am an avid reader and spend as much time with my family as possible.
