B3. Making it Real: Creating Frameworks Rooted in Institutional Values

Executive Director, Arts Ed Collaborative

Yael joined Arts Ed Collaborative in April 2018. She has worked with school districts and arts organizations across the country with a focus on evaluation, professional learning facilitation, and culturally responsive practices with the goal of ensuring equitable and engaging arts learning opportunities for young people everywhere.

Yael holds an EdM in arts education (Harvard University) and a BA in music composition (Barnard College). She gladly bid farewell to LA traffic and embraced Pittsburgh’s rivers and bridges in 2011. She lives in Squirrel Hill with her husband, two boys, and a Goldendoodle, where there is no shortage of shenanigans.
