Alayne Freidel-Sobel (Eagle Section)


Alayne is back for her lucky seventh summer, stepping out of the garden (and kitchen!) and into the Eagle Section as our Section Supervisor.

A Texas native with an infectious laugh and can-do attitude, Alayne is creative and fun, and an incredible mentor! Her favorite activities include knitting, dancing, singing, walking in the woods with her dog and building fairy houses with her daughter. She graduated from University of Pennsylvania in 2000, with a degree in Anthropology and Classics. Alayne is passionate about both Education and Youth Involvement. She began her career as a reading teacher through Institute of Reading Development (IRD), and from there moved to Boston Public Schools. Eventually Alayne went to work for the non-profit organization Youth on Board, where she specialized in helping to rebuild the Boston Student Advisory Council (BSAC), an organization that advocates for the voices of students in Boston Public Schools, and empowers the student body to have a say in their education. She also ran an afterschool knitting club in Cambridge. Fun fact/riddle: Alayne is an oldest, a youngest and a middle child!
