Theresa is very excited to return for her tenth year as the Polar Bear teacher and K-8 Art instructor at Charlottesville Day School. Theresa graduated from James Madison University in 2011 with an Art Education degree, Pre-K through 12 with a focus on using art across the curriculum. Theresa began her time at CDS as the Pre-K Grizzly teacher, but moved to Third and Fourth grade in 2014. She has taught in both the Spirit and Polar Bear rooms, led math instruction, taught art for the Elementary and Middle School classes, and works with the Theater program! She loves the many hats that CDS allows her to wear, and getting to know every student. Theresa’s daughter Jeanne is a preschooler at CDS.
