Heather joined Halton Waldorf School in August 2017 as the Early Childhood Coordinator. She grew up on the shores of Lake Superior and in the great outdoors of Muskoka. Heather started her journey in Waldorf at the Hunonia Waldorf School as a parent and shortly after that began her work as a Kindergarten teacher twenty years ago.
After eleven years of teaching mixed aged kindergarten, at Huronia and Toronto Waldorf School, Heather left the classroom and co-created My Child Myself, a centre that offered parent learning, community building and a business selling organic woolens. Following that she went back to the Toronto Waldorf School as Pedagogical Chair supporting parents, teachers and community.
