Amanda Brown
Camp Director

Amanda has been lucky enough to work at two innovative high schools during her teaching career and is thrilled to keep the innovative spirit alive in the summers at Galileo. She currently works as a Drama teacher at Intrinsic Schools in Chicago. Previously, she was a founding Humanities and Drama teacher at Da Vinci Science High School and an Instructional Coach for Teach for America in Los Angeles. She also spent three summers coaching new teachers at Teach for America’s Los Angeles Institute, worked part time and mentored with the Young Storytellers, and co-founded an after school program called Girls Amplified which helps girls tell their stories through storytelling, theater, and media. She holds a Masters Degree in Educational Theater from New York University and a Bachelors in Television and Film from Boston University. In her spare time, Amanda loves cooking, swimming, photography, stand-up comedy, and spending time with her family and friends.
