Meet Theresa

After spending 10 months teaching English in Bratislava, Slovakia through the Fulbright program, I have returned home to Philadelphia. I graduated from La Salle University in 2013 where I studied English and Political Science. I began working with children at the age of 16 years old at the Roxborough YMCA as a camp swim instructor. For the next 3 summers, I served as a camp counselor for 3-13 year olds. When I began University, I continued working with children through a program called Writers Matter, where I served as a mentor and tutor for urban, middle school students. While in Slovakia, I taught a wide range of students, from 6-16 years old. Creating a fun, active environment for children is important to me. Being a native Philadelphian, I have been lucky to have grown up immersed in the city’s culture and history. I have come to realize that Philadelphia’s museums, Read more parks, theaters, and libraries makes using the city as a classroom/playground ideal. In addition to teaching, I enjoy swimming, biking, hiking, and reading. I especially like to take my dog, Butch, to Valley Green for long walks.
