Maayan Ohayon

My name is Maayan Ohayon, but the kids call me Ms. Mai. I have a B.A. from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel and four years teaching experience at the Weizmann Day School in Pasadena, CA. I spent two years as a guidance counselor and resident dormitory staff at the Israel Arts and Science Academy, a boarding school for gifted high school students.   

I bring my love of art and creativity into the classroom and encourage my students to ask questions, develop their curiosity and be free thinkers.   

In between, I worked as an administrative manager and homeschooled my own children. When not at school, I enjoy hiking, SUP-ing with my family, gardening, sewing, and painting.
