Christine Randall

Educator

1. Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from and what were you doing before arriving at THINK Global School?

My name is Christina Randall, and I grew up in New Haven, Connecticut. Before TGS, I graduated from Yale with a BA in Political Science and a concentration in international affairs. I then decided to enter education and have worked in a variety of settings, including in a high school in France and non-profit youth programs, and most recently as a high school Spanish instructor in Connecticut.  I’m excited to work in a school where I can use both my background in international affairs and education!

2. What do you love most about teaching?

I enjoy learning what my students are passionate about and discovering new things through them. I also love hearing the unique perspectives and approaches to a challenge stemming from the diversity of the group.

3. What aspects of THINK Global School’s educational model do you find most appealing?

At TGS, students become producers of knowledge, not just consumers. It is also a model that truly encourages students to discover and chase their passions.

4. Describe your teaching style or philosophy. Do you have any unique teaching methods you use to keep students engaged?

In language education, I believe in focusing on comprehensible input instead of grammatical rules, so that students learn in a natural and more memorable way.  I have found the TPRS approach to be powerful in that regard.

5. Which of our core values do you feel you most embody, and why?

Satya-live truth. To me, this is all encompassing; when you live your truth, everything falls into place.

6. What is your most memorable travel experience thus far?

One of my favorite memories was exploring a rainforest in Costa Rica at night to look for glass frogs. We found one!

7. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I always feel drawn to revisit the places I’ve already been, but I would love to head anywhere where I can see the northern or southern lights.

8. What is your favorite book, and why?

Fluent Forever by Gabriel Wyner transformed how I understood one of my greatest passions, learning world languages! I believe it is a must-read for anyone venturing to learn a new language.
