Empathy's Middle School

Zachary Reznichek

MIddle School Director




"I combine my love of games and long history of role-playing games with my Masters in Education and teacher training to write innovative life-skills curricula.

Empathy Teachers

We would like to proudly introduce our team, the co-creators making the school a magical place where our children thrive. They went through highly selective interviews and hundreds of hours of training. Working at Empathy requires an open heart and adaptability to learn and grow - they must always step out of their comfort zones (teaching in nature instead of cement buildings), adapting to new teaching methods, exploring new subjects, expanding one's heart to embrace and celebrate difference and being the life model to love.
