Fun Facts About Christine...

When Christine was 5 she wanted to be a theatre actress when she grew up.

If Christine is in the classroom you can usually find her on the carpet doing circle with the children.  "I love using my songs and stories to bring them up and have them all excited and silly and then bringing them back down again so they are settled before lunch.  It’s pretty amazing to be able to do that."

Christine's favourite memory from her own childhood was lunch! "I remember the sight of the cook carrying in that big yellow bowl of lunch and knowing it was my favourite meal and just being overwhelmed with happiness."

Fun Facts About Teresa...

When Teresa was 5 she wanted to be a mom when she grew up. "I use to pretend my younger brother was mine and have him play house.  I would try and get him to call me mommy, he often wouldn’t and would just reply “no” and laugh."

Teresa has a love of empty boxes and all of the amazing things you can create from them.  You will often find empty boxes lying in wait in her office for the children to create with.  Her mom helped foster this love "My Mom would bring out two big card board boxes and would give them to my sister and I to decorate with paint. After we were done painting them she would put our dolls in the box with a blanket making a bed, she then connected it to our bikes using string. The box with the “Babies” would be pulled around as we biked around the block or to the park, until the box no longer had a bottom, my Mom would then get us more boxes to decorate and few extra for my friends to decorate as well."
