Co-Founder and Design Facilitator, ArchForKids
Janny established ArchForKids (www.archforkids.com) to provide hands-on, minds-on learning experiences grounded in architecture and design. She holds a BS in architecture from City College and a MS in urban planning from Hunter. In 1997, she participated in a Brooklyn middle school career day and was alarmed by the number of students who thought that school wasn't relevant to their lives. That experience led to a career that combines her passions for architecture and teaching. Janny has led programs in schools, community centers and arts organizations throughout the metro New York region. She is an experienced Professional Developer who has led teacher workshops under the auspices of the NYC Department of Education, Carnegie Mellon, MIT Museum and many individual schools.
