Nicknamed “the paper and tape princess” as a kid, I majored in Fine Art at Vassar, earned my Master’s at Bank Street, and began a joyful teaching career. My students and I have made stop-motion Lego films, painted Australian Dreamtime images, explored 3D printing, enacted mock trials, simulated archaeological digs, improvised comedy scenes, and laughed every day. The Maker movement caught my attention in 2010, and I helped launch our Westport Mini Maker Faire, with our own branch of Caine’s Arcade.
