We are both excited and sad to announce that after 5 years at Honeybirds, Ms. Meg will no longer be teaching at our tiny school. Meg is moving to Portugal to be an educator there, although she will still be involved in Honeybirds and will visit when she can. We look forward to cheering her on from afar in her endeavors to propagate Waldorf-inspired education in a new place.
We are also ecstatic to announce that Ms. Tamar Grimm-Feeser is joining the Honeybirds team! Ms. Tamar has two decades of experience working with young children and raising her daughter. She was a founding teacher at The Brooklyn Waldorf School and led a nursery and mixed-aged afternoon program. Tamar trained and received her Master's of Waldorf Early Childhood Education at Sunbridge Institute in Chestnut Ridge, NY. She has a deep curiosity for and love of the natural world and loves to share this sense of wonder with young children through storytelling, puppetry, and gardening. She loves traveling and uses her adventures as fodder and inspiration for her stories. Her experience teaching children in an urban environment has led her to embrace the rhythmic warmth, artistry, and holistic approach that Rudolf Steiner’s Waldorf pedagogy provides as a palliative to urban living. Additionally, she loves the diversity of cultures, languages, and potential friendships around every corner. One of her favorite aspects of teaching young children is to support their imaginative free play and to be fully present for the resourcefulness and joy their imaginations bring to each day.
We wish the very best for Ms. Meg in her new adventure and are eager to get to work with Ms. Tamar!
