Karyn Kurtz
Closter Upper School, Teacher - Class 3

I have been a teacher since 2000, joining the Palisades team as a head teacher in 2012. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from SUNY Plattsburgh and a Master’s of Science in Literacy through Adelphi University. I live in West Nyack, NY with my husband and twin boys. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, baking, and traveling. Palisades has presented me with the opportunity to grow professionally and to incorporate my passion for literacy, reading and writing into the school’s curriculum.
