Pre-K, Associate Teacher
Amanda J. Sarabia was born in Laredo, Texas, a town on the border to Mexico. In Laredo she was raised bilingual in English and Spanish and graduated from the Vidal M Treviño school of Communication and Fine Arts, where she focused on theater performance under the direction of Mr. Vernon H. Carroll.
She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre & Dance from the University of Texas at Austin in 2016. Throughout her college years, Amanda performed theater for elementary schools and children’s hospitals in Austin. She participated in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, where she explored acting techniques such as Meisner & Stanislavski and Shakespearean dramaturgy. She also studied abroad in Barcelona at the Institut del Teatre under Kari Margolis' direction of the Margolis Method, and was an assistant dance demonstrator for the Texas Musical Theatre Workshop.
In 2016, Amanda moved to Brooklyn, New York. She has assisted in production for the New York Fringe festival; volunteered for A.R.T New York; taken classes at Upright Citizens Brigade, Stella Adler, and Ballet Arts; and is a current student at T. Schreiber Studio for Theatre and Film.
Using her background in performing arts, Amanda wants to lead our students in growing their imaginations, developing their abilities, and continuing their internal cognitive development. Amanda is delighted to be an Associate Pre-K Teacher and teach drama and musical theater in our after school program!
