Debora was born on an eighth generation family farm in Upstate New York. It was an ideal setting to quench her thirst for exploration and constant need for movement. As an adult her desire to understand and embrace this planet led her on adventures around the world: as far away as Norilsk, Siberia as a member of a Waldorf Education Lecture Tour. Her interest in teaching began in high school in New Jersey where she volunteered as a teacher of English to immigrant children. She was attracted to culturally diverse teaching assignments, recreating learning experiences that held personal meaning for her students. Her research for her Master’s degree centered on the Fine Arts as a methodology for learning all subjects. This was the beacon for her to discover Waldorf Education. She has been an Early Years Educator, Class Teacher, Subject Teacher (Visual Arts) and a Pedagogical Administrator. Debora graduated the NWS Class of 2014/15 and the class of 2018, and worked as a support teacher and mentor for the 2018/19 school year.
