Renee Schwartz

Hello! I have four children (ages 19, 17, 16, and 6) and I have been a Waldorf homeschool consultant since 2005. Thousands of people a year from around the world visit my website. I hold an M.S. in Curriculum & Instruction, with additional training in Waldorf, Montessori, and Reggio Emilia methods. I am currently part of Cycle 11 of the Applied Arts Program for Waldorf Handwork teachers (fibercraftstudio.org). I am also the lead teacher at Little Bluestem, a homeschool co-op located in Southern Illinois (littleblustem.org). I share my ongoing collection of curriculum notes from my own classroom for free online at waldorfcurriculum.com.
