Kathleen Reagan-Anderson has led a rich and varied life. Growing up in upstate New York, she knew from an early age that she was destined to be a teacher. She graduated with top honors from Vassar College, majoring in French and earning her elementary teaching certificate. While teaching the early grades, she pursued a master’s degree in French language and civilization at New York University (NYU). Summers studying in France led her to teach at the American School of Paris. Marriage, children, and transcontinental moves ensued.
Kathleen discovered Waldorf Education through an article in Mothering magazine, which eventually led to her earning her Waldorf certification through Antioch University New England in 1996. From there she happily taught two years in a Waldorf kindergarten in Pennsylvania before deciding to fulfill her dream of being a class teacher. At the Minnesota Waldorf School, she took the first grade in 1998 and graduated the class in 2006. She then taught for seven years at L’Etoile du Nord French Immersion before returning to MWS as the French teacher.
Kathleen loves the great outdoors: camping, hiking, gardening, swimming, water aerobics, cross-country skiing and skating. Of course, reading and traveling with her husband are also favorite activities. Fun fact: Kathleen has lived on four continents and has, at one time or another, spoken five different languages.
