Meet Mrs. Christensen
How long have you lived in the area?
I have lived in Yorkville since I was a baby. The last four years I left for Chicago to go to Moody Bible Institute, and now I live in Sandwich.
Why did you become a teacher?
I first recall wanting to become a teacher when I was in first grade. It’s all I’ve ever really wanted to be. I can remember sitting in my miniature chair dreaming about how I would run my classroom if I was a teacher.
What do you love about teaching at Parkview?
I love the fact that I can bring God and His Word into everything that I do and teach. Whenever I feel overwhelmed, or whenever I can sense the kids are overwhelmed, we stop and pray. What a gift it is that we can do this! As a new teacher, I am so thankful for all of the love and support I have been given by my fellow teachers and staff members. They have made me feel like I can be who I am without having to cover up my weaknesses.
What’s your favorite subject and why?
I am really enjoying teaching math. Learning the complexity and perfection of our number system reminds me of how Great and Detailed our God is. I also love those beautiful, though sometimes rare, “a-ha” moments–the tiny reminders that I am producing fruit for the Lord.
What’s an impactful moment a teacher had on your life?
While it’s not really a moment, the greatest memory that I have that has impacted me today is the atmosphere that my third grade teacher created for the class. Her classroom always felt like a safe place, and as students, we truly believed we were a family in her class. My desire is to create such a place for my own students.
What’s an interesting fact or two about you? Perhaps a favorite book, hobby, or show?
I love to play and watch sports, and I am a White Sox fan.
Where do you attend church?
I attend Village Bible Church in Sugar Grove.
