Alex Delare passionately believes that all New York City children deserve exposure to the arts. Alex’s background in Universal Design Learning (UDL), differentiated learning and facilitation helps her to create thoughtful curricula and classroom experiences for students of all ages. She is also the Archives Secretary of the Museum, Arts and Culture Access Consortium (MAC) which is dedicated to accessibility and inclusivity for all. As the Archives Secretary, she is in charge of MAC’s event documentation and conserving paper and digital archives. Before NYCCT, Alex was an Education Specialist at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in which she created programming for schools and families. She also served as an Educator leading students K-12 and families through emotionally challenging conversations of loss, courage, and heartbreak. She was asked to represent their education department at the New York City Museum Educators Roundtable (NYCMER) to discuss the challenges of facilitation in today’s world. Alex and her husband are the co-founders and tour guides for their own historical walking tour company called The History Couple. She has been invited to give lectures at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and the Brooklyn Public Library in order to arm educators with further historical background and tools for how to create their own tours. As a Senior Educator and Costumed Interpreter at the Tenement Museum, she learned how to tell textured stories of immigration history as both a teacher and as an actress. Alex served as the Lead Teaching Artist for the Creative Arts Studio in which she developed and taught acting and musical theater programs. This programming culminated in a performance by her students at the Brooklyn Museum. She has a BA in Theater from Sarah Lawrence College and a Master’s in History from Brooklyn College.
