Pre-K & Kindergarten
Adrienne was born and raised in Syracuse, New York. She is a passionate life long learner and lover of academics, art, nature, and culture. Through numerous humanitarian experiences and international aid work, her desire to create change became a lifetime commitment.
She studied Anthropology at the University of Rochester before being accepted into Teach for America. She then attended graduate school in New York City, in a program with a specific focus on education reform. She was given the responsibility to provide better opportunities for special education students, students on the spectrum, and general education students alike.
For the last four years Adrienne ran a children’s fine art studio in Brooklyn, NY. Through their focus on art history, hands-on learning, and fine art techniques, students were able to learn skills like sewing, pottery, printmaking, weaving and more.
Adrienne loves exploring the outdoors, plants, and is an herbalist. Her hobbies include working with various art mediums, gardening, and traveling. She is looking forward to joining the Homestead community, working to inspire children to embrace learning in all forms, as she once did as a child, and still does today. Adrienne is excited to get to know all of the Homestead families, and share her knowledge and experience with the Homestead School.
