Zareen Levien – Producer

It was while volunteering one day a week in a 5th grade classroom that Levien realized she enjoyed her time with the children more than her high-profile product management role at Yahoo!. She decided to try her hand at teaching high school biology in a poorly funded charter school in Oakland, and had the time of her life.

Levien recently completed her MA in Education at U.C. Berkeley, to complement her BS in Symbolic Systems from Stanford. She is now teaching 3rd grade at César Chávez Elementary in San Francisco. She is fluent in Spanish, and in her vanishingly small spare time she sings in the band "Los Boleros".
