Christine Scott was born on February 27, 1937 (the fifth child of eleven siblings) to Levi Lewis Sr. and Olley Lewis (both deceased) in Proctor, Arkansas. Christine attended Gobler Elementary School in Gobler, Missouri, and graduated from Central High School in Hayti, Missouri. During her high school years, she sold Jet magazines. Shortly afterward, Christine journeyed to Chicago, attended Kennedy King College, and went to night school to further her education. She then went on to study teaching and received her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, and later obtained a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University in River Forest, Illinois.
In 2018, Christine graduated from Charis Bible College in Schererville, Indiana. Christine started her first job at Ludwig Van Beethoven Elementary School, Chicago, Illinois, and continued her professional career working as a preschool and Elementary Teacher for over 35 years with the Chicago Public Schools. Christine impacted her students in and outside the classroom with her creative learning style and left a legacy for others to succeed against all odds.
As a young adult, Christine Scott accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and was a faithful member of Freedom Temple Church of God in Christ, Chicago, Illinois for many years. She then moved to Gary, Indiana, and joined the House of the Lord Church where she dedicated her time and spiritual gifts to serve the body of Christ. Christine later moved to the south suburbs of Chicago and joined Homewood Full Gospel Church (now known as All Nations Community Church), South Holland, Illinois where she was active in prayer and bible study, women’s ministry, children’s ministry, and was a Sunday School teacher.
After many years of public service, Christine Scott retired from the Chicago Public Schools, but remained active as a substitute teacher, tutoring both children and adults in the Chicago metropolitan area and surrounding suburbs. She loved traveling abroad, photography, reading, gardening, attending Christian conferences, and pet/animal rescue. She also wrote and published two books - Trunkey, a children’s book (2015), and The Three Houses: Not Enough, Just Enough, and More than Enough (2018).
