Meet Mrs. Christine Cote

Christine Cote, our occupational therapist, was born in England at an Air Force base.  She has three sisters.  Mrs. Cote’s mom worked as a nurse and her dad was a forest ranger.  As a child, her first pet was a cat.  Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder was Mrs. Cote’s favorite childhood book.  Mrs. Cote went to school right here in Pittsburg where her favorite subject was English; she had fun playing basketball for the Pittsburg Panthers.

Mrs. Cote went on to college at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT where she enjoyed meeting new people and learning new things.  Working here at Pittsburg School was her first job after college.  She also works in the Colebrook and Stewartstown Schools.  As an occupational therapist she loves working to help people with fine motor skills because there are so many different ways to practice these skills.  She enjoys coming up with new ideas each week.  She especially likes working on craft projects with the students and has fun working with a variety of ages and helping students to succeed. She has been working as an occupational therapist for 21 years and loves working with students.  When asked what she likes about working in Pittsburg, she responded, “I love working in the school I attended.  The staff and students are wonderful!”

Mrs. Cote has two cats and likes to read historical fiction books when she relaxes.  She also spends time quilting and gardening. She belongs to the Canaan Steering Committee.  Every summer she and her family like taking family vacations.
