Jay Levin, the founder and lead teacher of FTC, LLC, has been teaching for the past 21 years. He holds two Masters of Fine Arts degrees, one in fiction writing, the other in playwriting as well as a California Teaching Credential. He has Montessori training and has developed curriculum with Quantum Camp and the Imagination School. He currently teaches Middle School at Spark Charter School.
Jay often spent hours at a time watching his father captivate middle school students with fantastic out-of-the-box instruction and slide-shows that featured the amazing natural examples they discovered as a family. As a youngster, his family traveled to nearly every Western National Park to delve into the scientific discoveries that the majestic world around them offered. It is these early experiences that have helped form FTC, LLC's character and mission to foster independent exploration and the development of character.
