Ms. Christine Sowden

Hello Families,

Welcome to 4th Grade at John A. Johnson!

My name is Christine Sowden.  I have been a teacher for 20 years and almost all of my teaching has been in St. Paul.  I love teaching and I especially love teaching at JAJ!

This is my sixth year teaching at John A. Johnson.  I began as a specialist and moved to third grade the following year.  After four years teaching third grade, I have moved to fourth grade for the 2020-2021 school year.  I am super excited to teach fourth grade!

I have two grown daughters, Linnea and Angela, and five grandchildren; Gabriella-18 years old, Drake-10 years old, Dakoda-4 years old, Dawson-3 years old and Alex-2 years old.  In my spare time I like to travel on my motorcycle, hike, camp, and spend time with my family.
