Haley Schwartz-Girls Division Director

Hi, I’m Haley Schwartz! I have been teaching for almost 7 years in LA, and am completing my fourth year as a Kindergarten teacher at Gindi Maimonides. In addition to working with children, I’m incredibly passionate about dance and yoga, and find it important to integrate authentic movement into our lives. I’ve been dancing since the age of 3, with an emphasis on jazz and contemporary styles. I spent my four years in high school on a competition Dance Team, taking on the role of Captain for two of those years. Both dance and yoga are common practices in my classroom, as I believe it’s important to offer children a space to express themselves through movement. I am so thrilled to be joining the team at Moe’s Camp for Summer 2020, and hope that the meaningful connections made will support your child in and out of camp. Looking forward to an incredible summer!
