Resources for Educators


Our Education Advisory Committee gives teachers a voice in Geva’s educational programming and provides a strong connection to implement that programming back into the classroom. The committee consists of educators from public, private, and charter schools (elementary, middle school, and high school levels), representing inner city, suburban, and rural schools, and representatives from organizations that act as liaisons between cultural institutions and schools Typically, the Education Advisory Committee meets once in the fall and once in the spring.
