Hello! I am Maddy Oldham , Assistant Manager for PLAYDAY!
I graduated from Hofstra University in 2021 with a dual degree in Early Childhood/Childhood Education and Drama and am a certified teacher in New York State birth-6th grade in all subjects. I spent time teaching in the Long Island public schools system, creating and facilitating character development curriculum for the 12.14 Foundation back home in CT, and working in different performance mediums before settling in NYC. I was always seeking a career at the intersection of arts and education and found a great match with PLAYDAY!
When not at PLAYDAY, you can find me at a concert with friends, cooking a new recipe, thrifting, or taking a long walk through a park.
I am passionate about SEL (social-emotional learning) and how art serves as an avenue to inspire confidence and spark curiosity in students. I am excited to be part of an organization that provides the space to foster that creativity and help students flourish.
