Vaishnavi Misra Dance and Musicvaishnavi misra pic
I grew up around music dance and theatre .Assisting in plays and performing as a child at various Stage, Television and Radio [ drama] performances and camps in India I studied and learned the Indian classical dance "Kathak" since the age of 3 under the guidance of Guru Surendra Saikia and completed my Masters in Classical Dance Kathak at the age of 12. This laid the foundation to learn many other dance forms from around the world, that today, I Incorporate in Bollywood dance. I also Studied and completed my Masters in Indian Classical Vocal [Hindustani style] under Pandit Rameshwar Prasad Mishra of the Banaras Gharana and have been his student for the past 25 years. I have been a choir singer and soloist for western style of singing all through my school and college years and have won many awards for that genre as well.

I have taught Music and Dance for as long as I can remember, but formally for the past 10 years. Musical Theater camps are one of the most rewarding experiences I can give children, as I can impart to them a bit of everything I know. Although they are short, Kids take away enormous amount of learning in those weeks. It is a passion that I cannot separate from myself. It brings the true"outside the box" thinking in me. My biggest reward is the smile on my students' faces when they leave class and the eagerness with which they wait for the next.

Jacqueline Keily - Critter College
Hello. I'm super excited to teach this and hope to be able to teach more in the Fall. I'm a former veterinary nurse of eight years. I changed careers in 2003 and have been teaching science ever since. I have 12 years of experience teaching grades 1-9. I love animals. At home I live with two cats and three guinea pigs. In my classroom I have three hamsters (Cheddar, Macaroni, and Cheese) and an aquarium. Children are inherently and intuitively curious naturalists. They're sponges for knowledge, absorbing, retaining and using new information at astounding rates. We all know this, but often we forget when we're helping to develop their roles as future ambassadors with animals.

Josephine Evonc
Having taught for more than 20 in the San Ramon Unified School District, in grades 2 through 8, I felt this would be a great time to do something different, so I made the decision to teach cooking. How thrilled I was to find that there was such a great need in the community, to have children gain the experience of being in the kitchen, creating foods other than cookies, cupcakes, or brownies with their parents.  I bring to the table, not only years of classroom experience, but the ability to get kids excited about what they can create themselves, thus being very willing to have brand new experiences with food and tastes.  I am happy to be a part of the San Ramon Community Center, and quite thrilled that my program is so well received!

Snapology - Denise Lee
Snapology wants to engage kids in “playful learning” to stimulate their creativity and spark an interest to learn especially in STEAM. We take what is familiar and unfamiliar to build a learning experience that is fun. Many kids aren’t as familiar with K’Nex which shows a new way to build constructively as they learn new concepts about animals or with energy. K’Nex uses connections of knobs and rods to show different configurations to build rather than stacking.

Denise Lee loves how she’s found a way to engage kids with Snapology’s activities as they want to return as they have fun learning new concepts. She does tell kids that we may have a challenge to build but we will do it together. The accomplishment of seeing a kid or a team of kids succeed is wonderful as they beam with success that they did it! It’s a wonderful environment to be in the energy of kids wanting to experience something new.
