The staff at the Teva Learning Center is what creates the unique beauty
found only at Teva.
The Teva staff includes the Director and Assistant Director and three Program Coordinators,
a medical professional and a team of diverse, enthusiastic, talented and knowledgeable educators.
We pride ourselves on creating an open, trusting, caring and pluralistic community,
in which each member of the staff brings their distinct flavor of Judaism,
past experiences and pedagogical approaches to their work.
Our staff is made up of musicians, artists, fire eaters, stilt walkers, jugglers,
dancers, performers, athletes, scientists, scholars and lovers of life.
Some staff members have pursued advanced degrees in education, environmental
studies, and social work, while others have gone on to Rabbinical school and
leadership positions within the Jewish community.
All Teva staff have been hired because they have demonstrated strong skills in working with
children through prior experience. Additionally, all staff are CPR and First Aid
certified, and are familiar with our emergency protocol should a situation
arise. Staff leading backpacking trips are certified in Wilderness First
Aid or as Wilderness First Responders.
The bottom line is that all of
our staff have one goal in mind: go out and explore, run around, play and
learn in nature and have a great time!
