Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Christine Larson
My name is Christine Larson. This is my 12th year at Greenway teaching first grade. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I have Bachelor's Degrees in English and Biology from Ohio Dominican College. I had the priviledge of attending Oxford University in Oxford, England to study British Literature and British Politics and Society. In addition I have a Post Bachelor's in Medical Technology from Ohio State University. Years later, after raising two children, I decided to go back to school in order to begin a new career and received a Masters of Education in ESOL from National University in Sacramento, California. I am highly qualified, holding Florida Professional Teaching Certification with an ESOL endorsement.
Teaching is my second career; my first being in the medical field. I find that teaching is where I am truly meant to be.
I love teaching first grade and being able to help the students learn their foundational skills that will ensure their success throughout their lives. I love the moments when their eyes light up because they finally understand a concept or they can finally read. I truly believe that all children can learn and I hope to be able to positively impact each student whom I have been given the priviledge to nurture. I also hope to instill in them the love of reading which will last them a lifetime.
I love cats, reading, nature, the beach, traveling, painting, puzzles and antiques.
