with Ms. Heather

our fifth grade 

This year the 5th grade are learning about Ancient Civilizations. The purpose of this is to study how the development of civilization mirrors the development of the human being.

We work on building a strong and supportive class culture. When students feel safe and valued then the academic pursuits of the class are able to flourish. Education is a social endeavor that requires strong individuals and strong communities.

Heather Allred has the privilege of spending her days with the Spruce Class.  She grew up in the Salt Lake area and has a passion for cultivating the appreciation of Place as a means for a more healthy, happy life. 
She received an Honors Degree from Westminster College, with a BA in Communications, completing requirements for entry into a Naturopathic Doctorate program. Family came first and instead of leaving the state to complete her ND, she put her efforts into the health service and medical device industries locally. She is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and has an MBA in Healthcare Management/Administration. 
Living as a teacher, nuturing children in an environment that cherishes and supports their whole health, is her dream come true.

Waldorf education teaches children how to think, rather than what to think.
