Heather grew up on the shores of Lake Superior and in the great outdoors of Muskoka and started her Waldorf journey at the Huronia 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 Schools, 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. Heather completed her Kindergarten training at Sunbridge Institute and Birth to Three Specialization Training at Sophia’s Heath.
In recent years Heather has studied Biography, New Adult Learning and Leadership to support her work with parents and teachers. Heather is also the Regional WECAN Representative for Ontario and Northern New York State as well as a Member of the WECAN board of directors. Currently she serves as the Early Childhood Coordinator and Early Childhood Faculty Chair at the Halton Waldorf School in Burlington Ontario
