This Wednesday, May 7, at 9:00 a.m., please join us in the School Store for a tea and reception to meet next year’s Grade One teacher, Marie Paul. Ms. Paul is one of Spring Garden Waldorf School’s founding teachers, and she has extensive knowledge of both our school and Waldorf education in general.
Ms. Paul has a B.S. in Education from the University of Akron, has received her Waldorf Certification and has been with SGWS for 31 years. While at Spring Garden, she has taken two classes from Grade One through Grade Eight; in addition, she has taught a combined Grades One/Two class through Grades Five/Six; one class from Grade One through Grade Three; one class from Grade Six through Grade Eight; and the current Class of 2014 in Grades Seven and Eight.
Ms. Paul has taken numerous courses in Anthroposophy and Waldorf education over the years, and her knowledge and experience are truly one of our school’s greatest treasures. Recently, Ms. Paul was honored in the My Favorite Teacher Contest, sponsored by Barnes and Noble. Her former student, Sarah Welton wrote an essay about Ms. Paul that won the 9-12 grade essayist category.
We encourage you to stop by and say hello, especially if your child will be in Grade One next fall!
