Ms. Christine Helm is a Lead Teacher for Upper Elementary and hails from the sunny islands of the Philippines. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, with a minor in French Studies from Ateneo de Manila University. After her one-year stint of working in the Jesuit school where she graduated, she was bitten by the teaching bug, and the rest is history. She moved to New York to take her post-graduate degree in Montessori Education for 6-12 Year Olds from the College of New Rochelle. Ms. Christine had the privilege of first leading a Lower Elementary class for a few years before she took on the 6-12 year class at Trinity Montessori School in Rochester, New York. She also had the privilege of being a field consultant for Montessori Education Center of the Rockies. She has been a Montessorian since 2002 and at Desert Garden Montessori since 2009! She sets the bar high for her students and feels proud when they step up and exceed her expectations.
