Ann Bio

Ann lived in Singapore until the age of 12, when her family immigrated to the United States and she began her new life in Orinda, California. A few years after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, Ann started a family. She raised and home-schooled four children, taught private flute lessons to elementary through high school students, and volunteered in preschool co-ops and early childhood programs in churches. When her eldest child started college, Ann returned to work managing staff in a veterinary hospital and then records management for a large corporation.

In 2016, Ann & her husband moved to Colorado, and she began working for Bright Horizons in Longmont as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher. In October 2018, Ann joined the Waldorf Early Childhood Program as an assistant teacher in Lavender Garden. She has enjoyed learning about the Waldorf method & philosophy of teaching, and will continue to provide guidance and love to these amazingly independent and imaginative young children. Ann also has a Pyramid Plus Approach Certificate from The Colorado Center for Social Emotional Competence & Inclusion. When not in school, Ann enjoys hiking, traveling, playing the flute, spending time with her husband and dog Koda, and finding a nice quiet place to read.

Keleigh Bio

Keleigh Bramwell graduated from Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology and Psychology.

Her career in Early Childhood Education began at a preschool called Tenderfoot Child and Family Development Center. While at Tenderfoot, she worked for 10 years as the Toddler Program Coordinator and Lead Teacher. Keleigh believes children learn best through play and is grateful to have a wonderful space both indoors and out for that expression.

Keleigh moved to Longmont, Colorado several years ago and began to work for Boulder Valley Waldorf School. She currently works as an assistant in Lavender Garden and also provides care during extended care and camps.

She enjoys photography of all types and graduated from Rocky Mountain School of Photography in 2015. She hopes to own her own portrait business in the future; until then, you may see her out and around with camera in hand.
