Register Now! New Teachers for Fox Valley Jewish School (FVJS!)

Big News from Fox Valley Jewish School!
Even though summer has begun, we are planning for next year. We are pleased to introduce two new teachers.

Danielle Dobies is known to many of you as the artist behind our mural. We are pleased that Danielle also will be teaching the FVJS art classes for 2015-16. Danielle has a masters of fine arts from Northern Illinois University and is excited to work with the FVJS students, some of whom she has already met through the mural project. Danielle will help the students work on the mural, but she also is planning many other fun art projects


Abby Evans will be teaching the core classes for students in 3-8 grade. Abby has a degree in elementary education from Purdue University. She taught in Grand Rapids, MI for the past year and is relocating to the Chicago area for the coming school year. Abby has great plans for activities for the older students. She also will be getting some advice from a former FVJS teacher, her big brother Sam.

We will be welcoming back Roberta Maxfield to teach the core classes for the PreK-Kindergarten and 1-2 grade classes and Hebrew, and Rachel Yackely to teach music classes. They each have new ideas to share with the students. We want to thank Ruth Silverman and Jared Kramer for their help in making the past year a success for FVJS students. Ruth is joining the school committee and Jared will be attending college.
