Handwork Teacher

Natasha Kraus was born in Parry Sound, Ontario.  She completed her degree and then worked as a Child Care Worker in Germany and in Toronto.   Natasha was first introduced to Waldorf Education by one of her professors.   Natasha had always wanted to be a teacher and when she visited the Toronto Waldorf School it was “love at first sight.”   Within the year she had enrolled in the first Waldorf Teacher Training Course offered at the Rudolf Steiner Center in Thornhill, Ontario.   Natasha then taught in Toronto, Halton and Nelson, graduating several classes before becoming the Handwork Teacher.  Natasha’s love of handwork began at an early age when her grandmother taught her to knit. Natasha now shares her passion for all aspects of the handwork curriculum with her students.  Natasha lives in Nelson with her partner and two daughters who are both graduates of the Nelson Waldorf School.   Natasha teaches Handwork in Classes 1-8.
