About Me

Originally from Western Massachusetts, I have been working with children for over 8 years and have loved every second of it! Since receiving my degree in Theatre Education, I have taught children Shakespeare, playwriting, improvisation/acting, and watercolor painting. I have also tutored children in reading, writing, and mathematics. I try to make every experience an educational experience- whether it is on the playground, during crafts time, or playing a simple board game.

My energy is very youthful and friendly, but I have a strong sense of control and structure. I am great with groups and special needs children, and I like to give children the opportunities to both lead and follow within a variety of activities that focus on teamwork. I maintain a relaxed and respectful attitude toward the children I work with, with expectations that they will do the same for me. In my spare time, I am the Artistic Director of a young Shakespeare company in the city that produces productions and educational workshops! I’d love to work with a loving family that encourages creative thinking and outdoor exploration.

Toddlers, Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children, Children with special needs, Multiples
