ELIZABETH WEST

Kindergarten Teacher (Pre first grade) 2021-22

Elizabeth West is thrilled to be part of a dynamic education that recognizes students for who they are, encourages them to unfold naturally as themselves, and honors them in the process.

EDUCATION:

  • Masters of Education, Waldorf Education Antioch University New England, Keene, NH
  • Bachelor of Science, Elementary Education Charleston Southern University, Charleston, SC
  • Waldorf Class Teacher Certificate, Grades 1-8 Association of Waldorf School of North America
  • Elementary Education Licensure Grades 2-6 South Carolina Department of Education

Elizabeth has had the opportunity to teach (and learn with) students of various socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, ethnicities, and dispositions. This has emphasized for her the importance of building a trusting relationship with each child. After interning with an experienced Waldorf teacher at the Denver Waldorf School, Elizabeth feels called to early childhood education. She is fascinated by this period of childhood and wants to support children in this phase of development using the principles of Waldorf education. As a lifelong learner, she is looking forward to being a part of a school where she can contribute as well as expand. Elizabeth is delighted to be part in this intentional approach to education, and foster an environment where individuals can come to know and love their world.
