INES KINCHEN
First Grade Teacher

Ines is passionate about working with children, plants, and bees. She encountered the world of Waldorf education after the birth of her son Marquise in 2009. Building on her prior career in the field of holistic health therapies, the path of Waldorf and anthroposophy felt like a natural continuum, and Ines studied at Lifeways North America, the Rudolf Steiner Centre of Toronto, and the Center for Anthroposophy. She led an in-home daycare in Chicago for children, ages 1-4, before joining the community at the Chicago Waldorf School. In 2014, Ines and Marquise moved away from the big city to the beautiful mountains around Asheville. Since then, their days have been filled with much adventure in nature, homesteading with many animals, and, of course, the daily, weekly, and yearly rhythm of the Asheville Waldorf School community.

Ines has held a camp, Honeybee Forest Children’s Camp, over the last few summers when school is not in session. She has also been devoting much time to gardening and tending bees, completing the Sustainable Biodynamic Beekeeping Training from Spikenard Honeybee Sanctuary. So, if you want to find Ines on campus, look in the school garden!
