About Me

My name is Allison (Barnes) Juhász.  I grew up in a small beach town 25 minutes north of San Luis Obispo.  I attended  K-8 elementary school in Cayucos and graduated from high school at Coast Union High School in Cambria.

I now live in Los Gatos with my husband, and teach in San Jose.  I enjoy playing piano, guitar and writing music.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and being in nature.  Reflection is vital for my personal growth, and I use much of time learning new ways of being mindful and healthy.

I am passionate about people, culture and art.  I’ve spent almost 9 years teaching fine arts, and have developed a dynamic, 21st century curriculum to engage all types of learners.  I am inspired by the dynamic and organic process of interacting and supporting students, while constantly learning from them.  Through this process, students gain empathy, critical thinking and a new understanding of themselves.
