Indre Noreika 

Nursery Teacher

 I spent my foundational years in rural Lithuania connected to the natural world and developing a great love for learning.  At the age of 9, my Mom and I moved to Chicago. Ten years later I graduated from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale with a Bachelors Degree of Zoology and a Certification as an Outdoor Leader through the Wilderness Education Association. I began my teaching career in 2005 as a Zoology TA and have been an educator since. From 2006 until 2009, I taught for various wilderness education programs in Texas, California, Connecticut, and New York. In addition to teaching, I always found ways to work with animals. My love and connection to the animal kingdom are as great as my passion for teaching. I volunteered at several wildlife rehab centers which left me with many great stories that I often share with the children. My happy place is surrounded by dogs and trees, far away from the noise of urban life. 

In 2009, I discovered Waldorf education and moved to Eugene to study both Early Childhood and Grades Education.  I have worked as an assistant, a lead, and a floater primarily in Oregon and Hawaii, thriving in the EC environment. My family and roots are in Lithuania where I had the pleasure of being all of 2020, living the life of a vegetable farmer. I believe that my connection to the natural world and my experience with Coyote Mentoring give me just what I need to guide and nourish your children. I am thrilled to join the Asheville Waldorf School family and to serve during these ever-changing times. Thank you for welcoming me to your community!
