Arcadia Alumni share their adventures in teaching and beyond!

Amanda Rae Penecale ’09 M.Ed. , Cornwall-on Hudson, NY: “This fall I will be starting a new position as the Art Department Chair at The Storm King School in New York.  I have spent the last two years as an art teacher in Bucks County public schools while teaching Continuing Education classes at Moore College of Art and Design.  I am looking forward to my new adventure in NY.  As well as being an art educator I am also a singer- songwriter.  I have been performing throughout the Philadelphia area, and I have released two EPs.  There are plans for a full length album out later this year.  If you are interested in hearing my music please visit my website”
