Dr. Christine Churchill
Dr. Christine Churchill is an educational consultant with Clinic Psychology Manitoba. Having served as both a teacher and administrator in various independent schools in Canada and the United States in the past three decades, Christine brings her diverse educational experience to the role of consultant in her work with students and their families.
Throughout her career, Christine has sought educational environments which introduced her to a multiplicity of educational philosophies or learning approaches, and broadened her understanding of human development, both individually and collectively. She began her career at Hillfield Strathallen College in Hamilton, Ontario, before moving to the USA where she worked at Metropolitan Monterssori School in NYC, Connelly School of the Holy Child in Potomac, MD, and The Bush School in Seattle, WA. Most recently she served as Middle School Principal and then Director of Student Care at St. John’s Ravenscourt School in Winnipeg. Although Christine has worked primarily with middle and high school aged students in the classroom, her administrative experience, including the supervision of student services, has covered the curricular outcomes and pedagogical approaches of all grades K to 12.
Interactions with students, and opportunities to allow them to discover and to develop their own sense of self, abilities and world view have always been Christine’s primary motivators. She has especially been drawn to the students who experience educational challenges or who learn “differently”, who highlight the intentionality and flexibility required to support all learners. As a means to supporting students, Christine has also worked closely with teachers, educational specialists and parents to identify and establish principles and practices that adults can employ to establish and to advocate for ongoing learning and growth within the school classroom and home environments.
