Mrs Christine Wilde has been a member of the Social Studies department since September of 2000 and is also a proud graduate of Fontbonne. After high school, she attended St. John’s University where she received a BA in Social Studies/Education 7-12. Upon graduation, she immediately accepted a history teaching position at Fontbonne, where she continues to teach today. Mrs. Wilde earned a MS in Literacy from St. John’s while teaching full time. She has taught many different courses over the past 19 years including Global to freshmen and sophomores, and Government to seniors. Several years ago, she started a new elective senior course called World Cultures and the Roles of Women where students study the impact women have had on different societies throughout history.
Mrs. Wilde has been a Faculty Advisor since her first year teaching and really enjoys seeing the family atmosphere that develops in FA. She was the coordinator for the Class of 2004 and 2010. She has fond memories of Sports Night practices, trips, ring day celebrations and so much more! She is also the founder and moderator of Fontbonne’s Political Issues Club, a discussion club where students look at current events.
Away from school, Christine is the proud mother of her 11 year old daughter and wife of her husband of 17 years.
Mrs. Wilde truly feels that Fontbonne is her “home” and relishes teaching history and government to the young women who are in her classes. She knows that the students are the voice of the future and will make such an impact on the world. As she tells all of the seniors at the end of the course “You are the movers and shakers of the future. Go make a difference”!
