Andrea began teaching at Berkshire Country Day School in 1995, serving as Early Childhood Division co- coordinator for four of those years. She especially appreciates the flexibility to create curriculum and grow alongside her students. One recent undertaking is combining the Nellie Edge literacy and phonics work, which   also incorporates sign language, with the Kindergarten’s service learning project to connect to area deaf and learning delayed individuals. Prior to BCD, she taught in public schools in Massachusetts, including several Berkshire County one-room schoolhouses. Andrea is the author and illustrator of On That Day, a children’s book featured on the PBS show “Reading Rainbow” on the first anniversary of 9/11. She loves to read, bake, and kayak. Andrea and her husband live in Sheffield, MA. Their son is a graduate of Berkshire Country Day School.
