Christine has always had a deep love for languages; growing up, she would absorb Portuguese taught to her by her grandparents like a sponge, and would often speak French with her mother at home. As a result, perusing an undergraduate and graduate degree in French Studies at Western University was a perfect fit for her. In order to give back to her community and help others acquire a passion for languages, Christine has volunteered in French Core classrooms, where she assisted in creating games and activities to foster an excitement for French. She has also taught a first-year university grammar course and plans to start her Bachelor of Education in the fall. Christine looks forward to sharing her love of teaching and the French language with children at Kidscape, and to encourage creativity through music and art projects.
