Toni Kirby will be taking up the third grade while Angélie Guilbaud is on leave. Toni’s background is in visual arts with a Masters in creative writing. Toni first came to the Waldorf School when she and her husband enrolled their son into the middle school.

She took two Waldorf teaching classes this summer including the third grade preparation class, and will enroll in the next level of training this fall.
