Miss Lindsay (Owner and “Director”)
Miss Lindsay graduated from Hartwick College with a degree in theatre and music education and a great deal of coursework in special education. Miss Lindsay has many years of work in Special Education and Early Childhood education. She has always had a passion for working with young children, and helping them to achieve their best. After two years of teaching, Miss Lindsay noticed a disconnect between school and the outside world, and decided to pioneer a program that was fun, developmentally appropriate, had an educational component, and a creative aspect that so many kids were missing. All of these together would help to foster a lifetime of learning. She hit the drawing boards, took business classes, and Skit and Kaboodle was born!
Miss Lindsay loves running classes! Her favorite part is getting shy kids out of their shell to act, play and learn!
