Alicia has developed curricula and taught art classes since 1998 and has worked with children ages two to eighteen, as well as with adults.

As an artist, Alicia has exhibited her photography in both Illinois and Ohio. When she’s not at the Old Town School, Alicia can be found at the beach collecting treasures, in the kitchen cooking & baking, out sniffing the neighborhood with her St. Bernard mix, Murray, or at her desk, writing and drawing all about her food adventures. She really, really likes her family, blue things, elephants, special pens, asparagus, books, monkey tails, thunderstorms, coffee, Japanese maple trees, globes, and exotic chickens.
