Hello! My name is Tyler. I'm a graduate student in the Linguistics Department at UConn, though I live in Northampton, MA. In the past I've been a 3rd grade paraeducator and a 4th grade teacher!
This will be my first summer working this Camp. I've been a counselor in the past, at a camp that I grew up attending!
In my free time I like to ride my bike, boogie-board, play soccer, and read books that I find at Grey Matter in Hadley.
What are you looking forward to as the returning Director? OR What are you looking forward to as the new Director? I am looking forward to being a fun and engaging role model for the TEX campers! I remember joyfully looking up to my summer camp counselors when I was that age.
What is something exciting you hope will happen this summer? What do you enjoy most about working with children? I love talking to children of all ages and taking them seriously as independent thinkers and questioners.
What games are you looking forward to playing this summer? I love participating in games. You can count on me to have a soccer ball, a frisbee, and a Kendama or two on deck this summer!
What trips are you looking forward to taking this summer? I'm looking forward to bike rides and hikes around the Valley! If I had to pick one planned trip, I think the ride to Maple Farm Foods would be it. I love their burritos!
