Sanibel Sea School is pleased to welcome Christine Szymanczyk to the nonprofit organization’s Board of Trustees.
Szymanczyk grew up near Lake Michigan in the northern suburbs of Chicago, and has been visiting southwest Florida since she was a child, when her grandparents moved to Naples. After graduating from Vanderbilt University, she spent time traveling and studying in Australia before earning a master’s degree in education at the University of Indiana.
After graduate school, Szymanczyk was selected as a Fulbright Scholar, and moved to Argentina to teach English at the Universidad de Villa María. She returned to the United States and taught high school Spanish for a number of years before she decided to move to Sanibel with her husband, Kyle, and their two active little boys.
“Kyle’s family has been involved with Sanibel Sea School for many years, and after getting to know the organization through the eyes of my oldest son, I am honored to join the Board,” she said. “Sanibel Sea School blends my love of the water, education, and conservation.”
Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. To learn more, visit sanibelseaschool.org.
