Certified SOI Practitioner
After graduating from Mercy College of Detroit with a degree in Waldorf Education with a Music minor, she began teaching at the Detroit Waldorf School in the kindergarten and was there for 7 years. During that time, she taught classes in child development at the Waldorf Institute. In 1989 she began her work at the Austin Waldorf School where she taught Kindergarten and Grades 1 through 5. Over the years she has consulted Waldorf Schools across the United States as a teacher, mentor and evaluator.
She was delighted to meet Renee Anderson at Synap2it! Learning Center and became interested in discovering the research behind the Structure of Intellect (SOI) and started training with Renee. The systematic, thorough approach to moving a student through “gaps and snags” in their learning process to “strength and mastery” is delightful and rewarding.
Her favorite moment recently at Synap2it! Learning Center was when a student she is working with commented, “My school work is making more sense and getting easier now. Before, it was like all the cars on the freeway were going in every direction and sometimes a big truck would drive through the traffic and really mess things up. Now all the cars are beginning to go in the right direction and stay in their lane, even the truck!”
The joy of success!
