I have always loved different spaces can build community and, how when we have a community, we all feel safe to grow and adventure! I grew up doing professional theatre in Philadelphia. It was a great privilege to learn about the history of the world through the active play of doing theatre. This started me on the journey of becoming a forward-thinking educator who believes we have different types of learning styles and knowing this can unlock a world of knowledge for people.
I started to tutor other students in middle school in math and continued to in high school. I found a passion for helping others and this extended to childcare in high school when my neighbors had their first born. Being around babies was exciting because they are learning everything for the first time (and what a special thing to witness and support!) I babysat their first kid from ages 6 months to 4 years before leaving for college!
I moved to Boston where I was able to expand my scientific understanding of how people learn and grow through my BA Theatre Education degree. I ended up teaching refugees vocational English (working with students 18-65 years old) and then trained for and taught 3-year-olds' early education (like basic reading and vocabulary skills). After graduating and becoming a certified teacher, I worked with a few more families with babies and helped a farming family with their four kids (all under the ages of 6!).
