I grew up in Richmond, Virginia, and attended Sarah Lawrence College, just outside of New York City. I studied creative writing, anthropology, and global child development as an undergraduate, before going on to also earn a Master’s of Science in early childhood and elementary education. After that, I taught for several years in public schools, mostly at the pre-kindergarten level. I loved my students deeply, but always felt aware that there must be a better and more holistic way of educating them. Still, I learned a great deal about the world, about equity, and about being an advocate for children during those years. In August of 2020, I decided to make a leap and move to Maine to work as an assistant at a Waldorf school. I found my inner being evolving rapidly and suddenly I felt that I had a new sense of purpose in my life: I wanted to walk this spiritual path and become a Waldorf early childhood teacher. I also had the wonderful opportunity to work with children in a forest classroom all year. I saw in action what I already knew intuitively: that nature is a healing context and a place where young children thrive. I am now thrilled to be returning to North Carolina as well as beginning my Waldorf teacher training in the 0-7 program at Sophia’s Hearth in Keene, New Hampshire.
