My name is Christine Slomp and I’m so excited to be back at Fleetwood for my eighth year! Many of you will remember that in years past I was the Music Specialist, but this year, I’m so excited to be starting a new adventure in grade 2/3.
I started my teaching career in Calgary twenty-eight years ago. Marrying my husband brought me to this windy city and now twenty-five years later I consider it home. Besides music, I have also taught just about every subject and grade at the elementary level.
We have two daughters aged eighteen (Rebekah) and fifteen (Hannah). Our household was made complete when eight years ago we welcomed our little dog Lucy who thinks that she is human like the rest of us!! We even caught her one day sitting at the table in a chair ready to eat with us – true story
When I am not teaching you will find me outdoors enjoying nature, golfing, camping, hiking and downhill skiing. I also like to read, participate in yoga and watch Netflix. But most of all I love to sing and dance! I have been known to break out in song about anything and anywhere- in the shower, at the table, while walking and even in the hallways at school - so I’ve been told!
As always, I strive for my classroom to be a place where children discover themselves and celebrate their diversity. Trust, taking risks and feeling comfortable with making mistakes are what I believe are the cornerstones for this to happen and for true learning to occur. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns no matter how small.
I look forward to getting to know all of you. It’s going to be a great year!!!!!
