We are pleased to announce that we have hired Tamara Rosenthal as our new nursery school lead teacher. Tamara is a trained Waldorf early childhood teacher. She was the early childhood assistant at Ashwood last year and rejoined the EC faculty in December. She has a gentle and caring spirit and the children love her.
Tamara grew up in Bloomington, Indiana. After completing a Waldorf Early Childhood teaching certificate in Eugene, OR, Tamara worked as an assistant in a Waldorf forest kindergarten program and led a parent-and-child playgroup. Tamara has a bachelor’s degree in anthropology with an emphasis in archaeology and bio-anthropology from Indiana University. She has worked as a field archaeologist and in the lab at IU. Tamara’s daughters have joined Ashwood as students in EC and Class 1-3. Tamara loves spending her time outside in just about any capacity: biking, canoeing, finding new wildflowers, gardening, hiking and playing in the snow. She also enjoys knitting and working with wool.
