Younger Home Center Teacher
Nikki Juvan brings her passion for the Arts to the Bridge School. She believes very strongly in incorporating the Arts, particularly music and theater, across all areas of the curriculum. She is particularly excited about finding ways to include them in our weekly trips to Wright Park as part of Bridge’s Ecology & Outdoor Leadership Program.
She received a Bachelor of Music degree in Musical Theater from the Hartt School of Music/University of Hartford in Connecticut and her Master’s in Education from the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota. She holds a K-6 Vermont teacher’s license with Highly Qualified Teacher status. For seven years she was the Kindergarten teacher at St. Mary’s School in Middlebury where she used music and theater extensively in her classroom, including writing plays with her students that were performed at various community events. She also spent five years at the Renaissance School where she developed and taught the Music and Theater Arts Curriculum. In all of her prior schools, she has had extensive experience with children in grades K-2.
Nikki is an accomplished singer and actress, having played leading roles with Lyric Theatre Company (Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls), Middlebury Community Players (Marian in The Music Man), and 4 different productions of The Sound of Music in which she played Maria. She is also the teacher and creator of the THT Kids program at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater and has directed children’s theater productions at many different schools as well as with Lyric Theatre Company.
She lives in Middlebury with her husband, photographer Trent Campbell, her daughter (when she’s home from college), and the two greatest cats in the world, Meredith and Willson.
