Star Garnet Charter Boise - Waldorf Initiative

A learning community encourages the development of the whole-child that inspires individuality, imagination, independent and critical thinking, creativity

[07/02/15]   Good afternoon!
Earlier this year, I relocated back to southern California, therefore, there was a standstill in the development of the Waldorf Initiative. Even though, I am no longer residing in Idaho, I would love to help get this initiative active again.

How can I help you? M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from the University of Idaho over 15 years of classroom experience in multiple methodologies - knowledge of educational law, ADA, curriculum development, charter school law, NCLB, Common Core and early years of the Waldorf education instruction.

This is your school, so active volunteers are needed. There is an abundance of research and paperwork to be completed prio to filing for the charter. And, Syringa Mountain School has already offered their support. Therefore, I have a proposition for any and all parents willing to put in time - a lot of time- in order to open a Waldorf initiative in Ada County. If you still have an interest and are willing to do the leg-work, please post a comment, so we may get the ball rolling, once again.
