This is Christine Fleming, our Program Associate.
Chris develops the programs we use in classrooms. Her programs usually include lots of art, which she loves and finds to be a real hit with the students. Her job is always changing – every year has been a little different, she says, but she usually works with students in 6th, 7th, 8th, 11th, and 12th grade. This year, she was able to work with some fourth and fifth graders in addition to her usual students, and she thought that was really fun! With all her running around to schools all over New York City, Chris usually spends a lot of time riding the subway – and that’s when she gets to read all kinds of books.
Chris’s job in program coordination is very important – without her, our school visits would be chaotic and very disorganized. We’re very thankful to have Chris!
