Jay Moskowitz received both his Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education with a K-8 teacher certification option and art minor, and his Master of Education degree with an integrated arts option from Plymouth State. These degrees were earned at 45 and 47 years of age, respectively, after a life of a variety of other academic and professional pursuits, including work as a paralegal, musician and blue-collar worker. He went on to acquire his AMS Montessori certification as elementary I director from the Seacoast Training Center. With interested parents, he founded The Bodhi Tree Montessori School in Rumney, N.H., where he taught first through fourth grades from 1999 to 2004. Jay has conducted numerous children’s workshops in both visual arts and music. In addition to teaching in the Art Department, he has also taught several childhood studies and interdisciplinary courses. Jay has been with the Art Department since 1996 as an adjunct faculty member, teaching Visual Literacy; he also supervises Art Education teacher candidates. Jay says, “Art is a metaphor for life. In order to be successful, one must pay attention, have patience and practice. Or, is it that life is a metaphor for art?”
