Bird (Kylie) Sebastian – Bluebell Preschool Lead Teacher

Ms. Bird is a dynamic Early Childhood specialist with particular talent for peaceful classroom management. Bird Sebastian started her teaching career at age 21 in a Waldorf EC classroom in Portland. She was impressed by the way Waldorf teachers care for the whole child and their ongoing development and has incorporated this approach in all of her subsequent work. The integrated farming and outdoor components at her first school left a lasting impression, and her classes spend a lot of time outdoors interacting with nature. Ms. Bird pursued Waldorf certification at the Micha-El Institute whilst completing her state of Oregon ECE Lead Teacher certification. After four years in a Waldorf classroom, she branched out and worked as a Guide (teacher) at a leading Montessori school for two years.

In addition to her 15 years as a preschool teacher, she has taught wilderness survival skills and outdoor education, and has ten years’ experience as a dance instructor. Bird moved to Colorado, where she started her dance company and eventually obtained her Colorado ECE lead teacher certification while training in Montessori education at Centennial Montessori. She supported families as a birth and post-partum doula, before returning to her first love, Waldorf early childhood teaching. When she isn’t teaching in a classroom, she enjoys reading, dancing, theatre, and exploring nature with her family.
