Miss Copeland

Miss Wingerter’s interest in teaching sprung from a love of working with children in theatre. As well as working with numerous children’s theatre companies in and around the Chicagoland area, performance has taken her from commercials and film to business ownership and design.

Originally from Atlanta, GA, Miss Wingerter moved to Chicago to attend Roosevelt University. She holds a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre, as well as a Conservatory Certificate from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York. Miss Wingerter is excited to continue to work with the Bennett community supporting and developing programming for Bennett Day Camp, Bennett Live, and the Bennett Classroom community.
