Ms. O’Connor graduated with a BA/BFA from Parsons School of Design in NYC, with a dual degree from Eugene Lang College through the New School of Social Research in Liberal Arts. Her love of art has taken her to study in Italy and France, and her love of music brought her to Ireland, Denmark, and all around America. She paints on anything from canvas to salvaged barn boards, to the downstairs walls in Duke Chapel. Ms. O’Connor visited this area when she was 21 for a conference on cultural diversity within the Waldorf movement and fell in love with the school. After moving here to work on the Haw River Festival, she found herself working at EWS within a year. She has worked in Kindergarten, her own Home Nursery, EWS After School, Summer Camps, and loves teaching High School Art as well. She completed her Waldorf Teacher Training at Antioch, New Hampshire.
