Meet your Presenter...
I was born in Escondido, California in 1968, the oldest of three girls born to an Air Force family. I had a happy childhood, participating in Girl Scouts, taking piano lessons and playing with friends. I loved going to elementary school and always felt at home in the classroom. From a very early age, I thought about becoming a teacher.
I attended UC Davis for four years, earning my B.A. as an English major and Education minor, marching in the Cal Aggie Marching Band and making some wonderful friends. Upon graduation, I was hired to teach English at Will C. Wood High School in Vacaville, where I taught for nine years.
When it was time to find a preschool for my oldest child, I happened across a flier for a Waldorf-based preschool near Vacaville. I was immediately drawn to Waldorf education, and began to wish that I could be a Waldorf teacher. It took some time, but once my second daughter entered preschool, I began the teacher training program at the Rudolf Steiner College. Soon after I graduated, I began teaching at the Davis Waldorf School and carried classes full-time for fifteen years until this past June. This year I have taken a step back from full time teaching, but I have been happy to offer my knowledge, skills, and insights to the faculty as the Lower School Mentor.
