Krista Mäkilä


Greetings from 4M! My name is Krista Makila and I am excited again to be a part of the teaching staff at CCS this year. I graduated from Laurentian University in Ontario, with my Bachelor Degree in History. I continued on with my education at The Kings University College in Edmonton, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Education. From there I taught at a Christian school in rural Alberta for four years. After that, I decided to move back to the 'big' city. I substitute taught for many Christian schools around the Calgary region during my first year. I was fortunate enough to work at CCS, not only as a substitute teacher, but also as a fill-in for a few months in Grade 3, while one of the teachers was on sick leave. From there, I was blessed to get a full time position in Grade 5, and now in Grade 4 at CCS.

In January of 2013, my husband and I were blessed with the birth of our first child. He has been a pure joy in our lives.

It is my hope that this year the Grade 4M class will discover their own passions and gifts and use them in a positive way.

It is amazing to be a part of a school community which allows students to learn in a faith-based environment. I love to watch students grow and learn how to be positive stewards in our world, and how they can work together towards making our world a better place!

God's Blessings, Krista Makila
