My name is Nancy Roy and I am a certified Massachusetts teacher. I earned my masters degree in the Art of Teaching from Elms College.
Our active learning center offers individuals, families and groups a wide variety of educational resources and services. Since opening our doors in the spring of 2013, we have facilitated the tutoring and mentoring of hundreds of students and individuals from across the region. We also offer fun workshops for kids and adults. Please take a few moments to explore our new website, or contact me personally with any questions you might have about me, our staff, or our wonderful facility here in Three Rivers, a village of Palmer, MA.
Many events are planned for the upcoming weeks and months, so feel free to come back and visit the site as often as you like..
Your new beginnings in learning are just a phone call away.

In this Sewing Studio Workshop you will have access to sewing tools and guidance from Nancy on constructing a decorative pillow. Sewing machines are available, but feel free to bring your own. You will need to provide your own pillow form and materials. As a suggestion, you can make your own pillow form using the stuffing from an inexpensive pillow. Walmart has bed pillows for under $3.00 that are good for this purpose. Beginners can make a simple pillow. Others with more experience can learn how to insert zippers and welting or other decorative embellishments. Please call or email ahead to discuss your project. 413-896-5838 (Nancy), email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or register online at https://interactiveschoolhouse.com, $20/person.
