Jill Weber, Lead Kindergarten Teacher
While studying anthropology in university, Jill became aware of Waldorf education, and after moving to the west coast, further explored ‘being human’ through the lens of Rudolf Steiner’s works and anthroposophy. She completed her Waldorf teacher training in Eugene, Oregon, in 2012, and has been teaching in outdoor kindergarten programs since then, first in Oregon, and then in southeast Iowa. She is inspired by a holistic approach to education, one which calls not only on students’ intellectual capacities for learning, but on their hearts and active bodies, as well. She appreciates the continual renewal of imagination, inner flexibility and warmth that come through working with young children, and is committed to helping build strong foundations through time in Nature, consistent rhythms and healthy sensory experiences.
