Born and raised in Milano, Italy, Serena Scoccimarro started her career as an educator in New York. During the past 10 years she has had the privilege of working for the Early Childhood Program at the Rudolf Steiner School in Manhattan and for various other schools in Brooklyn. Driven from a vision that combines her passion for art and language, she has designed after-school art programs, summer camps and "Baby and Adult” playgroups in Italian, English and French.
Serena received her B.A. in Management and Business Administration and her post-graduate course in Arts and Management from Università Cattolica di Milano. In 2018 she attended the Studio Teacher Cohort organized by Teaching Beyond the Square of NYC. In 2020 she completed the course Teaching Italian Inside and Outside the Classroom organized by the Department of Linguistic and Cultural Comparative Studies of Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in NY.
She constantly consults with Italian educators in Milano to create the right courses for her different audiences.
Through these experiences she has had the chance to explore the Reggio Emilia and Waldorf philosophies that, together with the pedagogical vision of the artist Bruno Munari, inspire her everyday work with children.
