Christy was born and raised in California and moved to Southern California for college. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Performing Arts and Educational Studies from University of California, Irvine.
She moved to New York for graduate work at New York University, where she received a Masters of Arts in Early Childhood and Special Education. Prior to graduate school, Christy worked as the Head Educator and Volunteer and Internship Manager at a non-profit children’s museum called Pretend City!
Christy has always loved New York for the musicals, the energy of the city, and the poeple! Beyond teaching, her passions include dancing, performing, volunteering and traveling to new places. She also works at a dance studio in Park Slope, where she loves teaching tap.
Christy is thrilled to join the Cobble Hill Playschool community as she wants to inspire the opportunity of learning through play. She has always loved to dance, learn, and play and is most passionate about sharing her joy with the little ones and helping them discover the love of learning.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” ~Mr. Rogers
