Jonny Flood grew up in Northern Vermont, and came to the world of theater and education through Peter Gould's Get Thee To the Funnery camp in Craftsbury at the age of 12. The value of this program led Jonny to pursue his degree in English Education at Boston University, where he taught in the public schools of Roxbury and Jamaica Plain. After graduation, he left Boston to become one of the developers of NEYT's theater program at the Gifft Hill School on St. John, USVI. NEYT's Education Director from 2016-2018, Jonny helped build the the Town Schools Theater's partnership with local elementary schools and the local homeschool community. He continues his work with NEYT as visiting faculty.
