My name is Christine Mori and I am the Curriculum Specialist. I have been a teacher since 2000 and I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th. Before moving to Connecticut, in 2012, I taught in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York and Florida. I am originally from Pennsylvania and a graduate, in Elementary and Special Education, from Penn State University. I also have a Master’s degree in Teaching and Learning, with a concentration in Reading, from Nova Southeastern University, in Florida.
My role as a curriculum specialist involves many parts. I have the unique opportunity to work with students, teachers, and parents daily. I help with instruction, school culture, scheduling, coordinating events, and I am an active member of several committees.
Duffy is a wonderful place that is built on respect, responsibility, and compassion. Our community stretches far beyond our brick walls, and I look forward to our partnership with you and your family. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
