What inspires me each day: the students’ love for meaningful work and the way that they earnestly take up the tasks given to them.
What it is about Waldorf Education that calls to me: the connections that are woven between the various academic and artistic disciplines. There is a gradual and meaningful building that occurs, concept upon concept, and experience upon experience.

“I hope the classroom feels like a home with a predictable flow and order that is comforting, reassuring, and inspiring—a space that frees the mind to think and work, rather than cluttering it with unnecessary stimuli.”
