Yuka Fukada

Kindergarten Teacher, Sunflower


Kindergarten Teacher, Sunflower

Yuka grew up loving babies and children, swimming and sailing in the ocean in the summer, and skiing in the winter and early spring in Japan. A visit to Honolulu Waldorf School many years ago touched her heart, and this began her journey into Waldorf Education. She moved to Nelson so that her children could attend NWS and she could work as a Waldorf teacher. Yuka worked in the grade 1 class as a co-teacher and as the teaching assistant. She taught music and recorder in the middle and upper grades and substituted in K-8. She feels blessed to work with the beautiful and loving children of the Sunflower Kindergarten.
