About Michelle


Bio

Hi everyone! I'm Michelle. I graduated from New York University with a BFA in Technical Theatre. While at NYU, I thought I was going to be a set designer. However, during my second year, I fell in love with lighting design and had to figure out what direction I wanted my career to take me. I had a love of theatre and a love of working with children. My professors inspired me to find a way to combine the two, why chose one over the other? That's when I discovered the NYC private school...

Hi everyone! I'm Michelle. I graduated from New York University with a BFA in Technical Theatre. While at NYU, I thought I was going to be a set designer. However, during my second year, I fell in love with lighting design and had to figure out what direction I wanted my career to take me. I had a love of theatre and a love of working with children. My professors inspired me to find a way to combine the two, why chose one over the other? That's when I discovered the NYC private school community. I worked for 7 years in several different NYC private schools, bringing theatrical design to student productions. I also taught elective classes to students interested in learning about design and the computer programs designers use.

Being able to teach students of all ages is the most rewarding job one can have. My students teach me as I teach them. Every student is unique. I like to make the classroom setting fun, welcoming, and safe. I want to be like my professors - they saw my potential before I did, and helped guide me to become the teacher and designer I am today!
