Mireille (pronounced Moriah) grew up in the Netherlands where she had the privilege of attending the Waldorf of Driebergen from kindergarten through high school. She graduated Universiteit Utrecht with a degree in English Language, studied Early Childhood Education at Cabrillo College and then received her Waldorf Teacher Training at Rudolf Steiner College in 2006. Mireille continues her second eight-year journey as the teacher of the 8th grade students, the class of 2023. She is inspired by the beautifully complex picture of child development that informs the pedagogy in Waldorf schools and continues to be in awe of the wisdom in Rudolf Steiner’s curriculum. She hopes her enthusiasm for learning will be reflected in the children’s joyful discovery of the world and of their own individuality. Mireille enjoys family, cooking, travel, running, gardening and swimming.
