Hello! I’m Robert Morgan, and I’m the new Director of the Basement Teen Center. I grew up south of Detroit, Michigan, but I’ve been in and around Montpelier since 2002; We’ve probably seen each other around town!

I have long enjoyed working with young folk; teaching guitar, bass, mandolin, ukulele, and fiddle, and serving as a production and recording mentor. I’ve also worked in youth residential programs, and have spent the last 16 years, five months and 25 days raising my own two kids. 

I make block prints, ink and watercolor drawings, digital art, and I dye fabric and sew. I study and practice meditation and yoga and I enjoy board games, footbag, kettlebells, geocaching, hiking, kayaking, and swimming. I’m also an amazing(ly bad) video gamer. I look forward to offering to share these passions at the Basement Teen Center. I’m also wildly curious, so let me know what you like! [rmorgan@wcysb.org] Maybe someone could even help with my gaming, or my Spanish… Both are muy apestoso.

If you want to know more, check out My goals as your Director. I look forward to hanging out with you all and making good things happen!

Hello! I’m Kate, the AmeriCorps member at the Basement Teen Center. I graduated from UVM in 2020 with a degree in psychology. I’m excited to work at the BTC and get to hang out with everyone! I spent way too much time trying to figure out what to write about myself here, so I’m just going to wing it. I have way too many hobbies to be an expert at any of them, so I’m mediocre at a bunch of things – juggling, solving a Rubik’s cube, riding a unicycle – basically anything to avoid sitting still. My real strength is making cheesy puns, and I’m also pretty good at eating cheese. I think that’s a good note to end on; I’ll see myself out.

Feel free to e-mail me at kmurphy@wcysb.org if you want to hear any more nonsensical rambling!
