Melissa is always glad to return to Studio East each summer to work with young actors. She has been teaching second grade for 10 years and is a former HS Speech and Drama coach. Melissa has been with the Studio since she was a camper in 2003. After experiencing the magic of SE youth programs, she was thrilled to join the summer faculty in 2016. Theater brings a world of self-discovery and expression that is so valuable and healing. Watching students grow through exploration is truly wonderful!
