Jeanenne La Bella
After graduating from the Waldorf School of Garden City in 2003, Jeanenne La Bella attended Binghamton University where she majored in English with a concentration in Rhetoric. With a passion for creativity coupled with her attention to detail, Jeanenne found common ground with a career in public relations and event planning. She has launched several successful public relations campaigns with luxury hotel properties such as Dorchester Collection, the Regent Palms Turks & Caicos, and the Dolder Grand in Zurich, as well as planned extravagant events for these five star properties. A 'lifer' at the Waldorf School of Garden City, Jeanenne was a regular on our sports teams and always played a lead-role in extra-curricular activities. As the Development Assistant, some of Jeanenne's day-to-day activities include managing gift processing and procedures as well as overall coordination of special alumni events and activities.
Deann Reyes teaches math in grades 6 through 9. Born in Lafayette, Indiana where her father was a Marine, Deann moved around a bit as a young girl and even lived in Okinawa, Japan for a few years. She finally ended up in Arizona and later went on to get her Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice Studies with an emphasis in mathematics from Arizona State University. Inspired by her father (who had a second career as a math teacher), Deann followed in his footsteps and became a math teacher. She taught and tutored math for several years at both the middle and high school levels in Arizona and in Florida. When she’s not in the classroom, Deann also enjoys coaching softball and soccer. “I look forward to cheering-on Waldorf’s athletic teams from the sidelines!”
