Meet Emma

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

Hello, My name is Emma DesRoches and I am currently a sophomore at Marymount Manhattan College studying theatre, dance, and directing. I love reading books and watching movies, especially discussing them afterward. I am allergic to peanuts and treenuts so I am comfortable and knowledgeable on how to deal with things like that. I have been dancing for fifteen years and at my dance studio is where I first started working with children. I started out as a mentor and demonstrated classes for elementary age children while eventually moving on to teach and run my own classes. I was in charge of up to fourteen children at a time and made up in class games and team building exercises while also choreographing dances. I also was very involved at a local theatre where i performed in three musicals a year. In two of my years there I was a summer Read more camp counselor for two weeks long in which I worked with elementary and middle school age children. The goal of camp was that at the end of the two weeks we would have a show prepared. It consisted of many different games and activities involving crafts and improvisation that all of the kids really enjoyed. As a counselor I was in charge of choreographing a number for the show, assisting the campers in learning lines, and creating a fun, energetic, and happy environment for the kids to learn about theatre and enjoy their summer break. Outside of the theatre and dance world I have also been a summer camp counselor at local YMCA in my home state of Massachusetts. It was a nine to five camp where the kids played outside, did arts and crafts, learned different sports, and took swimming lessons. Along with all of these jobs i have also been babysitting for family friends and neighbors since I was thirteen years old. I have a lot of experience working with children and I am always up for a fun adventure and meeting new people.
