- Early Childhood Teacher and EC Level Chair
Johanna joins Chicago Waldorf School after spending the last four years as an Early Childhood lead teacher at Four Winds Waldorf School in the western suburbs. In addition to her Kindergarten, Preschool and Parent-Child work at Four Winds Waldorf School, Johanna taught grade school Movement Education, served as Early Childhood Faculty Chairperson, a member of Leadership Council and on the Marketing Committee. Johanna discovered Waldorf education through Holistic Moms Network in which she was a Chapter Leader for five years. After taking her first Parent-Child class with her son, her call to work with children in a beautiful and nurturing environment emerged. After a successful marketing career, her love for teaching blossomed into Waldorf homeschooling her son through grade one and eventually teaching at a Waldorf school. She received her Waldorf Early Childhood Teaching Certification from Sunbridge Institute and holds a BA in Merchandising Management and Apparel Production Management from IADT - Chicago. She loves being outdoors with her husband and two grade school children, especially road trip camping, at the beach or wild edible foraging!
