Christine Miller, Teacher

Hi! My name is Christine Miller. I found my passion for Early Childhood Education when I enrolled my daughter at Ballard Preschool Co-op. She started in the Infants class and we grew and learned together all the way through the 3-5s class. When my second daughter was born, I enrolled her at the co-op too! When they both graduated to elementary, I decided it was time to explore my next steps in Early Childhood Education. I am currently enrolled in the BAS Early Childhood Education Program at North Seattle College and will earn my Bachelor’s in Spring 2021. I am so thankful to jump into my career as an educator here at Ballard Preschool Co-op, where I’ve found community, connection, and joy! My goal is to provide a safe and welcoming space where children can comfortably explore, grow and connect with others and the environment surrounding them. In my free time, I love to draw with my daughters, go on walks, read, go to coffee shops, try out new recipes, eat my favorite foods, and spend quality time with family and friends!
