Enrolling TK-8th grade

Fall 2022!

I am a nature and project based teacher, inspired by Waldorf education. I foster a love of learning and teach to each child's learning style. I empower critical thinking, encourage questions and emphasize old fashion values, morals and manners.

                                   Classes start September 1st! Email to start the enrollment process today!

Because children grow up, we think a child's purpose is to grow up. But a child's purpose is to be a child.

Lower Grades Teacher/Director, Wendi Zane

I am a Credentialed Teacher with a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I 've spent years studying and working in a Waldorf Inspired Public Charter school setting and have my one year Foundations Certificate from Building Bridges, Antioch. I have spent many summers in Art of Teaching programs, including: Preschool, First and Second grades and am a mother of a 14 year old Waldorf student. I've spent my life working with children of all ages.  I love the outdoors, paddle boarding and collecting baseballs! I will provide rhythm, beauty and foster a love of learning. 

Upper Grades Teacher/Co-Director, Brian Heise

I'm a natural teacher. My philosophy is centered in having balance as a student and a person. I truly love to teach, and I feel very lucky to have worked with 1000's of students and athletes in my schools/teams over the years. 

I am a Waldorf certified teacher with over eight years teaching experience at a Waldorf inspired charter school and over 25 years experience as a swimming coach. I have a B.A. in Social Science. I'm a father of two grown children (both were k-8 Waldorf students). I have a love of nature, family, nutrition, yoga and Crossfit, but my inquisitive nature leads me in many directions.

My curriculum is traditional: getting to know your student and learning with them. Ultimately, it's about learning how to learn and helping students find themselves and their purpose_ nothing matters more than knowing who you are. 

Lower Grades Assistant/Guide, Audrey Mackinnon

I grew up in a Waldorf school, Kindergarten through eighth grade. I have  a year and a half of experience teaching horseback riding lessons to children ages 3-15. I have led over a dozen girl scout troops getting their horsemanship badges and helped teach summer camp for three years. I have experience babysitting and helping at multiple schools. I enjoy outdoors, especially when animals are involved and have a passion for teaching children.

Upper Grades Assistant/Guide, Erin Whitehead

I am a K-12 Waldorf graduate, currently continuing my education at community college studying psychology. I have worked as a camp counselor and have grown to enjoy working with children, especially in the Waldorf environment. I love nature and being outside, which is why I spent the summer as a whitewater raft guide, sharing with kids the great outdoors, as well as how to advocate for our wildlife and rivers. I enjoy reading and writing and art or many kinds, anything to keep my hands busy.

It's not the destination, it's the journey.
