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.
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!
