Chris Kilmer – Grade 4
“To unlock the potential of each student and help guide them to becoming creative, free-thinking individuals is one of the greatest gifts the teaching provides. I value the opportunity to follow children through their different developmental stages and getting to know each child intimately.”

She has deep roots in the Waldorf, Anthroposophical and Biodynamic movements in Wisconsin along with her extended family.
