Rudolf Steiner School Adds New Kindergarten Teacher11:18AM / Thursday, June 28, 2012
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School announced that Somer Serpe will teach the Rainbow Room kindergarten this fall. She joins experienced Waldorf Early Childhood teacher Michelle Kuzia, who leads the Sun Room kindergarten class and has taught at GBRSS since 1978.
Somer Serpe will begin teaching the Rainbow Room kindergarten class this fall.
Serpe moves to this position from the nursery program, located in the same Early Childhood building on campus, where she has taught since 2007.
“I'm excited to return to the kindergarten, where I began my Waldorf teaching journey," Serpe said. "While I will miss the very young children in Nursery, I am looking forward to being with children from current and previous classes as they embark on the next phase of childhood.”
Serpe trained as an artist and a teacher, earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Parsons School of Design and her Masters in Education at Sunbridge College. Serpe enjoys using puppets to tell stories to her class, frequently making the puppets herself. She is also a parent at the school, with two daughters in the grades, and is an avid Morris dancer who performs at May Day celebrations at the school and throughout the community.
