Jane’s education, teaching experience, and ability to compassionately interact with students, prepare her well to continue the teaching she loves.

After living and studying in Montevideo, Uruguay and Madrid, Spain she developed a love for language and literacy.

Jane earned her BA at Tulane University, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2003. In 2013, Jane graduated Summa Cum Laude from Hunter College with an MA in K to 12 education with a specialization in TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages). Jane taught and became certified in three different states, adhering to each state’s standards.

Jane facilitated and taught seven different curricula on the road with child actors on the national tour of “Annie.” Recently Jane worked with private clients using micro-schooling as schools switched to remote learning due to COVID.

In her last teaching position, she facilitated teacher training on supporting the English language learner in mainstream classes. Jane co-wrote and co-led professional development training to middle school and high school classroom teachers.

This fall, Jane is teaching part time in the Edgemont School District. She is happy to have returned home, closer to her Nyack roots.

Jane is committed to helping those who struggle with language, and develops confidence and independence in her students, while identifying and strengthening the skills these students need to succeed.
