Ms Zoe’s introduction to Waldorf Education began as a kindergarten student at Emerson Waldorf School and has always been an integral part of her family culture. During college, Zoe was involved in an Anthroposophic study group and worked at the school store of Emerson Waldorf School. After earning a B.Ed in Early Childhood Education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2005, Zoe taught a group of children aged 3-6 in a Reggio Emilia-based classroom for one year. After the birth of her son in 2006, she worked as a nanny, volunteered as a peer breastfeeding mentor and was active in the natural birth community, and then operated a Waldorf-inspired home preschool for two years. Upon the birth of her daughter in 2010, she enjoyed some time as a stay-at-home mom, then returned to work (children in tow) as an assistant for two different Waldorf-trained teachers in their own home programs. Zoe and her family moved to Asheville in 2014, and she has been on the faculty of our dear school ever since. Zoe is honored to serve as the Faculty Chair of the Early Childhood section, and as the Early Childhood representative to the Asheville Waldorf School Leadership Team. Zoe holds a diploma in Waldorf Early Childhood Teacher Education from Sunbridge Institute and a Certificate from the anthroposophically-based, therapeutically-focused advanced training course, Nurturing the Roots. From her home base in Madison County, Zoe enjoys spending time with her family working in the garden, hiking, dancing, baking, and is blessed to wake up to a birds’ dawn serenade every morning.
