Welcome to Beauty, Harmony and Order. Just as if you came over to chat with me and have a cup of tea I write this blog in a conversational style, intimate, irreverent and yet purposeful. Many of my posts are inspired by readers like you or those at my Waldorf Inspired Charter School or in my work as a Waldorf Kindergarten Teacher Trainer. I’m called mom by 3 wonderful daughters,”Order” 18, “Beauty” 15 and “Harmony” 12, and wife to Coach. My blog shares both inspiration and information on Waldorf kindergarten, parenting and glimpses into our lives.

As a certified Waldorf ECE educator, Waldorf Kindergarten Teacher Trainer, and a mother, I offer supportive educational talks and workshops in my Head, Heart and Hands classes about parenting, early childhood Waldorf education and REALITY – how best to walk that fine line between Waldorf education ideals and modern-day home life. I am available for speaking engagements or at school or in home consultations.

    Holy Cow this is the most creative, rich, and fun site I have seen in long time. You are such an inspiration and a delight! What beautiful daughters and names for your daughters, I LOVE IT! So kind of you to reach out and say hi. I would love to have a conversation some time and get caught up. Are you still going to the conferences? I loved seeing what you are up to, and I see your courage, humility and assertiveness to get out there and share your wisdom and knowledge! You rock! You are my type of woman, I wish we lived closer. Peace, love and joy to you, your Waldorf man and your Beauty, Harmony, and Order.

      It is whiteboard that has been lightly sanded and then several coats of chalkboard paint have been applied. The frame is from a frame store.
