Meet our Client Services Manager, Michelle Yera

Waldorf method unfolded naturally. As Client Services
Manager for The Waldorf Connection, she provides the

I am a homeschooling mom of twins, age 10. We live in a serene beach town, where homeschooling support is minimal. In fact, there are only a few families that are using Waldorf -inspired methods.
When I began my homeschooling 7+ years ago, I realized I needed much more that what was available to me locally. I turned to the online Waldorf community and what a help it was! I honestly don’t think I would be homeschooling in this way, had it not been for the resources I found online. At first, it was hard to find anything much about Waldorf. But lately, a wide variety of wonderful materials has become available.
To me, it was still a challenge to figure it all out. I am a visual person that likes to “see it”. Or at least ask someone questions until it makes sense to me.
I was tired of being frustrated with thoughts like- “Am I doing this right?” “Should I be doing more? “How can I make this balance with my life?”
As homeschooling parents we make some very important decisions about our child’s education and lifestyle. How could I make all this fit ? I like to see all the pieces of the puzzle before I put it together.
That’s why The Waldorf Connection was created. A venue to ask questions, get step-by-step instructions and put the pieces all together.
I have come a long way since I first started learning about Waldorf Education. The confidence that I have gained from all these wonderful resources is priceless to me. It has enabled me to move forward with whatever grade I am bringing to my children. I know that I am on the right path for me and my family and I don’t have to walk this path alone! And neither do you…Join me on this journey of balance. Learn from others and bring some confidence, community and clarity to your life.
Please look over all the resources available here at this site. It was created for parents like you and I
who just want the best for our children and be confident enough to bring it to them!
