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 received a B.S. in Anthropology at the University of Rochester before being accepted into Teach for America. She then attended graduate school in New York City where she received her Masters in Teaching. Adrienne taught second and third grade for four years in NYC. She ran a children’s fine art studio in Brooklyn, NY with a focus on art history, fine art techniques, and hand-on learning with sewing, pottery, printmaking, weaving and more. Adrienne joined the Homestead Staff in 2020.
Adrienne holds NYS Childhood Education (Grades 1-6) Professional Certificate and Montessori Lower Elementary certification and is attending Montessori Elementary Teacher Training Collaborative in Lexington, MA this summer to add MACTE accreditation to her credentials.
Adrienne loves exploring the outdoors, plants, and is an herbalist. Her hobbies include working with various art mediums, gardening, and traveling.
I am excited to get to know all of the Homestead families as I work to inspire children to embrace learning in all forms.”
