Carolynn grew up in Bristol, CT and danced at Nutmeg Performing Arts Centre since she was 5 years old. She danced competitively with Nutmeg through her senior year of high school in addition to cheerleading at Bristol Eastern. She spent her summers working at Whiz Kids Day Care in Bristol as a preschool teacher. From her experiences at summer camp to being an assistant dance teacher, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in the education field. Carolynn went on to UConn to receive her undergraduate degree in Math and Secondary Math Education as well as a Master’s in Education. While at college, she was a member of the UConn Kickline Team where she performed at basketball games and college dance competitions. This fall, she also returns to Bristol Public Schools as a math teacher at Northeast Middle School. Carolynn is proud to be from this community and is excited to give back to her hometown as a teacher both in the classroom and in the dance studio.
