Hi! I'm a hiker, rower, teacher, and proud aunt looking for an opportunity to explore new places, learn new things, and share my passions with new people.
I’ve been a teacher for 20 years, and although I love my job and my students, I’m feeling a need to explore the places my great grandparents left in order to come to America. I’m looking for opportunities to join a family and a community and help with English language learners, work with children or help create outdoor adventure programming for children, learn about a new community and try new experiences, learn Italian, connect with my Italian and Irish heritage, and to be inspired by others!
As a teacher, I’m very comfortable working with children. I also have experience working in outdoor experiential education. As an athlete, sports come naturally to me. While I am not necessarily trained in farm work, sustainability, photography, house renovations, or building projects, I am interested, motivated, and willing to learn!
-childcare (games, trips, stories, activities)
-instruction in social-emotional learning (activities to help children learn how to work together and problem solve)
-experience / adventure based education
-rowing - crew
-photography (a hobby of mine!)
-art (sketching, painting, crafts for kids)
-sports (basketball, running, canoeing, swimming, biking)
-knitting (my grandmother taught me)
-adaptable (I'm flexible with daily needs/expectations)
-creativity (problem solving, activity creation)
-varied interests (always looking for more hobbies and skills to add!!)
I'm pretty adventurous - I'd love opportunities to explore the countryside and go hiking when I'm not working. I am curious and willing to learn - if you have the patience to teach me! If you have any questions, just ask!!
