Jane is very excited to return to Maybeck, where she taught English for four years from 2005 until 2009. This year, she will be teaching Composition, Art History, Philosophy, and Shakespeare. She uses the project-based and student-centered approach to teaching in her classroom and particularly loves hearing what students say during discussions. In addition to having been an instructor at Maybeck, she has taught English and History at Head-Royce School, Marin Academy, and Everest Public High School. In her free time, Jane enjoys spending time with her partner and 14-year-old daughter, going on road trips, camping, taking pictures, seeing plays, and collecting pineapples.
