Miss Vanaman is new to the Charter Arts community, teaching US1 and Sociology during the 2017/18 school year. She grew up in Huntingdon Valley, PA before moving to Wilmington, Delaware. Miss Vanaman attended an arts high school in Delaware called Cab Calloway School of the Arts before returning to Pennsylvania to earn a B.A. in Social Studies Secondary Education from Juniata College in 2015. Last year, Miss Vanaman taught SAT Prep and served as a day-to-day substitute and long-term substitute at Cab Calloway.
She has always enjoyed history, creative writing, film studies, and photography, but has an appreciation for all arts subjects. This passion led her abroad in 2015/16 to teach English and U.S. History and Culture in the Czech Republic as a part of the U.S. State Department’s Fulbright Program. While there, she was able to travel to various countries across Europe, both with her Czech students and solo. Miss Vanaman hopes to bring her experiences abroad directly to her classroom and share her love of traveling with the students and staff of Charter Arts.
