In 2012, The Denver Waldorf School hired a new Russian language teacher, Tatyana Nevolina. Tatyana has been teaching our students since the beginning of school, bringing a great deal of enthusiasm and joy. With degrees from both the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, and the Metropolitan State College of Denver, and four years of experience in a classroom, Tatyana will join her background in education with her native language skills in Russian. Former colleagues and teachers praise Tatyana for her care for the children, diligence in planning, storytelling skills and passion for her subject.
“Those in the public school reform movement have some important things to learn from what Waldorf educators have been doing for many years. It is an enormously impressive effort toward quality education, and schools would be advised to familiarize themselves with the basic assumptions that under gird the Waldorf movement. Art as it helps to reveal the use of language, art as it can be revealed in numbers, and certainly in nature.”— Ernest Boyer, former president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
Waldorf graduates think for themselves and value the opportunity to translate their new ideas into practice. They both value and practice life-long learning and have a highly developed sense for aesthetics.
