Christie received her Bachelor of Commerce with Honours from Ryerson University in 2016 with a focus on Business and Communication. Upon graduating, Christie worked in community management within the technology industry in Toronto. Christie has always had a passion for teaching and working with children, which stemmed from studying and teaching English in France. Christie decided her true passion was teaching young minds and has since obtained her teaching certificate after deciding to pursue a career in early education. “I believe that an early education is the foundation for all of our futures.” Christie joined the LIS team and is thrilled to bring her passion for sustainability, diversity and creative writing to the school through her teaching practices and previous experiences working with children.
