My name is Rachel McClaine. I am from Bethel Park, PA and am currently a senior at Notre Dame studying psychology and minoring in education and data science. After I graduate, I hope to go to graduate school to study child clinical psychology. At Notre Dame, I sing in the Liturgical Choir. I love Flexable because I get to spend time doing fun activities with a lot of awesome kids!
Hi! I hail from Memphis, Tennessee, via Jonesboro, Arkansas, via Detroit, Michigan! Yes, I’m a Yankee clothed in Southern charm 🙂 I have spent most of my adult life working in the vast field of Education. I have a B.A. in Speech with an emphasis in Theatre from Harding University. I love to act in and direct plays, and play word games. I also love to visit my son, daughter-in-law, and adorable grandson up in the beautiful hills of northwest Arkansas!
The classes I teach are Acting and Theatre, and Adventures in Oral Genre (storytelling, oral interpretation, and public speaking). I believe oral communication of all types are essential parts of education for students of all ages. I appreciate the opportunity that Flexable has given me to help students learn and develop the skills of creative and critical thinking, team work, and communication

Georgia Young is from the Greater Philadelphia area and attends Penn State University in State College, PA, where she’s working towards a BS in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. A classically-trained dancer, Georgia has worked the past three years as a dance teacher and creative movement dance camp leader for children. In her free time, she enjoys dancing with her team at PSU, running, baking, and doing photography. She joined the Flexable team this summer to host “Creative Movement Dance” Virtual Mini-Camps and is excited to now offer “Mindfulness” Virtual Mini-Camps this fall! Understanding how challenging it can be for busy parents and children to find time for self-care throughout the week, Georgia is passionate about encouraging children in stress-relieving and creative activities such as yoga, dance, drawing, journaling, and mindful breathing. She hopes her class will provide kids an outlet to express themselves creatively and gain confidence!
