Jane was the first person to greet me when I arrived as the Principal at UNIS on East 51st in 1968. She showed me her kindergarten classroom and took me to lunch. She also entertained my mother during her visit to New York. She was always willing to to take me to the airport in her large Cadillac. She was a special kindergarten teacher. I send my condolences to her family. Mary Roosevelt

My deepest condolences. Mrs Yao was my teacher 1963/64. I remember her kindness and joyfulness as a teacher. I was terrified of coming to school but in a short time, she made it such a safe and happy space. What greater kindness is there? She is one of the teachers I truly remember. lots of love to you.

My mother said that one's kindergarten teacher is the most important teacher one will ever have because s/he sets the tone for education. I was fortunate to have had Mrs. Yao. I adored her. She was at my UNIS graduation 12 years later & that meant so much. A. Orly Core Greenberg, Ph.D.

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I worked at UNIS for 15 years with Jane and remember how elegant (she had absolutely gorgeous legs) and how kind and friendly she was. She was kind enough to lend me her Kindergarten room for Summer School sessions. She had it set up using Feng Shui, and her room really did offer an especially peaceful environment for the children to be in. I know that teachers who did Kindergarten Intake Interviews also loved using her room. Feng shui and her loving spirit made it special. I am very glad to hear she attained 103 years and was surrounded by loving family. You have my condolences on this heavy loss.

Dear family of Jane, I am deeply saddened by the passing of my dear friend Jane and regret to learn it so late. We taught together at UNIS for 3 decades and I was fortunate to know her and her husband Tom personally. She was generous, attentive and fun to be with. May she rest in eternal peace! Please accept my most sincere condolences.
