Christian Virtual School is excited to introduce Mr. Christopher Brown, who started with us at the beginning of the summer teaching Grade 10 Music (AMU2O). He will also be taking on our AMU3M – Grade 11 Music course when it is available for registration.

Chris graduated from Redeemer University in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Science and a bachelor’s degree in Education. He completed a double-major in music and mathematics.

After graduating, Chris began his teaching career directing the music program and teaching Biblical Studies at a K-12 school in the Greater Toronto Area. Working with students in Grade 3 through Grade 12 gave him the unique opportunity to develop and implement a wide variety of instructional methods, as well as witness long-term growth and improvement among his students over several years. Giving oversight to junior, intermediate, and senior level classes allowed him to construct a systematic and strategic approach to delivering the curriculum in a co-ordinated and strategic manner across grade levels.

Chris also entered the role of guidance counsellor in 2017, completing his specialist qualification in guidance and career education shortly after. He finds a great deal of satisfaction in equipping and encouraging students to face their current situations with resilience and navigate the roadmap leading to post-secondary education or work.

In addition to teaching, Chris enjoys family time, composing and recording new music in his home studio, playing beach volleyball, skiing, Star Wars, and serving as pianist and accompanist in his local church.

One of his favourite Bible verses is John 1:5 (NLT) –

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.”
