Lizzie Jacobs,
Teaching Assistant

My Name is Lizzie, and I became interested in Waldorf education after having my daughter and attending the Parent/Child class at Emerson Waldorf School.  I fell in love with the natural approach Waldorf education offers, and I am particularly passionate about providing an environment for children to be in nature, play freely, explore, and simply dwell in an unrushed childhood.  I have just completed the training in London, UK to be a Waldorf Kindergarten Teacher, and I am delighted to return to North Carolina to work at Sunseeds.  As well as working with children, I am a personal chef and love creating nourishing and tasty food for all ages.
