Kate enjoys singing and using drama and movement in the classroom. She believes that Waldorf education is a healing balm for today’s world.
Kate and her husband, Claude, have been Waldorf parents, too. She knows the challenges and joys of being a teacher and parent and loves to share her skills and experiences in working with parents.
