Isabel
Art Teacher

Hi! I’m Isabel! I am a 21 year old Fine Arts student at Paier College of Design. There is never a day that goes by where I am not painting, drawing, or sculpting. I have been a lover of the visual arts since I was old enough to hold a pencil, and I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love every day. The Giggling Pig allows me apply my skills and aid in the artistic growth of all children with a creative mind! It is a wonderful place with talented instructors and lots of fun art projects.

Working with kids at the Giggling pig is awesome! It's so great because you can make a real difference in their lives. You get to see them grow, learn, and develop new skills. And let me tell you, it's amazing to inspire their curiosity, creativity, and imagination. kids have such a cool way of looking at the world that can totally brighten your day. It's like being a superhero, helping shape the future generation. And the best part is, you get to have fun too! At the Giggling pig you get to do arts and crafts and do other activities, and just let your inner child come out to play. It's such a rewarding experience to be there for them, supporting them and cheering them on. Working with kids is truly a gift that brings so much joy and meaning to your life.

Hello I am Reagan and have worked at the giggling pig for around 4-5 months now. I am a high school student at Jonathan Law and enjoy writing/literature. I have loved working with kids my whole life and do many volunteer programs that work with them side by side. There’s many reasons why I have choose to work here out of all places. The Giggling Pig is a great environment with amazing colleagues. The work itself allows me to use my skills and creativity in the work space. The Giggling Pig values my contributions as well as others and provides opportunities for growth and mistakes. The culture here is supportive and fosters collaboration amongst employees and staff. The team is like a family, and I enjoy the positive and friendly atmosphere. The work challenges me and keeps me motivated throughout each work day. I feel very fortunate to be part of such a wonderful workplace.
