Judy teaches students studio art throughout our lower school as well as a Visual Arts elective class in middle school. Judy also works collaboratively with all of our teachers to help students deepen their understanding and learning in multiple content areas. In addition, Judy teaches Advisory in our middle school, facilitates learning through students’ independent Innovation Labs, coordinates our eighth grade Community Service/Social Action class, and offers after school enrichment in Art and Cooking.
When Judy joined Yavneh, she served as the Gan Co-teacher and Gan/Gesher Art teacher for five years. Judy majored in interior design and art and received her degree from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. Prior to Yavneh, she was an assistant teacher for three years at a local private school where she coordinated the after-school care program. Judy became a teacher because: “I love teaching children, working with different personalities and different abilities, and helping all students learn and feel confident.” Judy and her husband have two children. In her spare time, she enjoys surfing, hiking, painting, working out, camping, reading, riding horses, and spending time with family and friends.
