Jay Annadurai

Years at Gems



Middle School Faculty, Upper School Faculty


Jay Annadurai teaches Upper School students at GEMS. She has experience teaching sixth through eighth grades both internationally and in urban and suburban environments around the Midwest. With her bachelor's degree in anthropology and master's degree in education from Ohio State University, she has been recognized for her exceptional curriculum development in the Columbus Public School District.
Jay connects with each of her students and enjoys seeing them explore the world and expand their understanding through literature as they are introduced to new authors and genres. Her classroom’s environment is one that challenges students to understand and respect different perspectives and incorporate new ideas into their learning, inspires goal-setting and active engagement in the material, and promotes lively discussion that invites students to step out of their comfort zone.
