We are happy to bring on Miss Judy as our new Sign Language teacher!! Judy comes with a Master's Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from New York University. She previously worked for three New York state agencies in the capacity of a Rehabilitation Counselor, Manual Communications, and her focus was on advocacy, compliance, counseling, sign language interpreting and referral/resources. She was also a program director for a private not-for-profit agency and also a former therapist. While she was a stay-at-home mom, she worked as a substitute teacher in two school districts in Rockland County, New York. She is also a former board member and participating parent in her daughters' nursery school for six years. There she also introduced folk dance and autoharp lessons to the children.
She is fluent in Sign Language and is also a singer and musician, playing a number of instruments, but lately the ukelele and recorder are her main focus. She is currently a member of the Warwick Valley Chorale.
Widely talented and educated, we welcome her as a new member of our Fields of Green staff!
