Theresa Narvaez-Neville is an associate teacher in classroom 1. She has been working at the JCC since 2003.
Theresa grew up in New York City and began working with children at the age of 13 at Columbus Preschool and Gym. Theresa worked there for a number of years before moving on to New York Kids Club, where she led a wide variety of classes, such as gymnastics, dance, and cooking classes, working with children of all ages. Theresa says, “Teaching is something that I have always wanted to do. Children are naturally very curious and inquisitive, and I love being a part of their early years of journey and discovery.”
Theresa is also a licensed massage therapist and is a graduate of the Swedish Institute with an associate degree in occupational studies for massage therapy. She currently runs her own private practice and also practices at the JCC when she is not in the classroom.
