Chris Kane

Assistant Teacher

Working with kids keeps me grounded, reminding me to keep my mind open to imagining the reality we want to live in!

Chris Kane (they/them) is excited to join the School Age program at PIC in the First and Second-grade classroom. 

According to Chris, "I bring my knowledge and curiosity of the natural world and art into the classroom, as I find them great vehicles to access kids' imagination. Working with kids keeps me grounded, reminding me to keep my mind open to imagining the reality we want to live in!"

Chris grew up between Scotland and the U.S., and earned a bachelors in Environmental Sciences at the University of California Santa Cruz.

After moving to Philadelphia in 2017, they have been involved in the West Philly community in multiple capacities, from mutual aid work involving food access to community engagement events involving art, music and dance.

Chris is a school-age teacher by day and esthetician/drag artist outside of the classroom!
