Hannah joins us from the Orchard Valley Waldorf School (OVWS), where she has worked since 2018 in various roles, most recently as the mixed-age Kindergarten teaching assistant. Hannah grew up in Ithaca, New York, and after earning her B.A. in Culture and Media Studies, began teaching at the Ithaca Waldorf School, formerly known as Stone Circle School, of which she is an alumna. Hannah has also served as summer camp counselor at Earth Arts, an outdoor education program.
Hannah has completed the Waldorf Early Childhood Certification for ages birth to seven at Sophia’s Hearth and loves sharing her love of cooking and baking, sewing and fiber arts, and the outdoors with children. She is passionate about Waldorf education and especially loves how the early childhood curriculum presents children with a sense that the world is good and that it is a gift to us to live here, with all the beauties and challenges. She is very excited to be part of starting up a new school and making Waldorf education accessible to even more children!
