Meet our Arts Integration Coach, Judy Klima

Judy Klima is a progressive arts educator devoted to transforming the nature of education.  She believes that a school environment needs to be engaging, hands-on, with plenty of opportunities for meaningful learning and creativity.  She holds degrees in early childhood, elementary and arts education. 

As the arts integration coach for IAA, Judy works closely with classroom teachers, local artists, art organizations, and other community members to provide a network of opportunities in the arts for our students.

"I believe that children thrive in a positive environment and that joyful learning can flourish at school.  I believe that schools are places that can deepen creativity and an innovative spirit.  I am inspired to help lead this school in it's mission of learning through the arts.  I feel passionately that schools with a focus on the arts are the perfect place to nurture happy human beings eager to learn."
