Welcome to Mrs. Christy's Classroom!

Hello! My name is Christy Sohn.  I am the teacher for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at Rymfire Elementary School.  I recently graduated from Flagler College, where I studied Elementary Education and Deaf Education.  Though I have lived many places thoughout my life, I did most of my growing up in Orange Park, so I consider myself a Floridian through-and-through. Now I live in St. Augustine with my husband and my dog. 

 I chose to study Deaf Education, truly, on a whim.  Back in High School, I focused on studying Theater and I wanted to be a Drama teacher.  However, upon filling out my application for Flagler College, I suddenly changed my mind.  I had always held an interest in American Sign Language, but never had the opportunity to study the language.  I took a chance and wrote "Deaf Education" in the space labeled "Intended Major."  It ended up being the right choice for me!  I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people and realize my true potential and calling.

In my classroom, I try to make learning as fun as possible.  I want my students to enjoy coming to my class.  I know that the average person would walk into my class and think that I am just playing games, but what I see is my students being actively engaged in my lessons and truely demonstrating that they understand the concepts.
