Christine Helm

Co-Lead Teacher – UE CR10

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. This is her 17th year as a Montessorian and her 10th year at Desert Garden Montessori! She sets the bar high for her students and feels proud when they step up and exceed her expectations.
