In her free time, Delucia enjoys hiking and backpacking trails. 

According to Delucia, she grew up in Bennington, Vt. and still has family in the area. She is living in Burlington, along with her brother. 

Delucia hadn’t originally planned on becoming a teacher. Instead, she found herself on the path to education during the pandemic.

“I [was] working for an organization that helps school students get jobs with their local conservation organizations,” Delucia said. “From there, I decided I wanted to go into education.”

Delucia then got her Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Vermont, and began working in Outdoor Education.

According to Delucia, she applied to several schools in the area, but finally settled on BFA.

“BFA felt like it fit best,” Delucia said.
