From a young age, Natalia knew she was born to be a teacher. Upon discovering Rudolf Steiner’s education vision at a Waldorf inspired school in Quito, Ecuador, Natalia quickly recognized it as her calling. She has adopted the Waldorf philosophy for education which has helped her channel her passion for knowledge, spirituality and life. Natalia was raised in the Andean Mountains, where natural learning patterns are not just a philosophy, but a way of life. She enjoys practicing Yoga, singing, surfing and hula hooping.
Natalia holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Universidad Central del Ecuador; and is a Registered Early Childhood Educator (RECE) in Canada with over 9 years of experience working with young children. Currently, she is part of the Foundation Studies in the Rudolf Steiner Center in Toronto.
