Prior to joining Yavneh Academy, Linda Gans served as a vice-president of financial planning for a major brokerage firm. Her career was put on “hold” when her three children were born. Linda wanted to be on the same schedule as Danielle (’02), Elisheva (’03), and Jonathan (’05), so she joined Yavneh in 1995. Linda is exceedingly passionate about teaching and, as a very dedicated teacher, she is extremely devoted to her students. Her goal is to create a positive learning environment and to inspire each of her students to learn and grow .
Linda received her degree in English literature and is a voracious reader (3 to 4 novels a month). When not teaching, she also enjoys cooking, walking, relaxing at the beach, and playing mahjong with friends.
Linda and her husband, Jerome, have been members of the Fair Lawn community for more than 30 years, and are proud grandparents of Michal, Noam, Maya, and Leo.
