A huge Kol HaKavod to Jenessa Schwartz, Yavneh Middle School Language Arts Teacher, for receiving the Jewish LearningWorks 2022 Ruby Award!
“It is Jenessa Schwartz’s authenticity that makes her a pied piper of Jewish teens. At Yavneh, Jenessa brings her full self to her work and in so doing engages students’ hearts and minds as Jews and as human beings, as they are beginning to figure out their place in the world.” – Jewish Learning Works
This annual opportunity for recognition was established in 2020 in collaboration with the San Francisco Teen Initiative, to amplify the importance of teen engagement.
We are so proud! <3
