Kim D’Angelo grew up in Montana and graduated from Montana State University with a BA in Modern Languages. She studied in Ecuador, where she served as principal flautist with the Cuenca City Symphony, and has also spent time living in Peru, Venezuela, Mexico, and Guatemala. She and her Peruvian husband spent over 10 years in Florida, where she taught Spanish for 6 years in public high school and also private music lessons. During this time, Kim rediscovered Waldorf education from a parent's perspective, and was one of the founding parents of a Waldorf initiative in St. Petersburg, Florida. She began Waldorf teacher education training, completing a spring course in 1999. Kim has completed foundation studies and foreign language workshops. In December 2005 the D'Angelos moved to North Carolina to be part of the EWS community. Her son graduated in the class of 2013, and her daughter is in the high school. Kim has taught Spanish in 1st-8th since fall of 2006, including 3 years in the high school, where she developed a high school Spanish curriculum that connects and builds upon what is learned in the lower school, meets state standards, and follows Waldorf pedagogy. Each summer Kim enjoys an amazing trip with students to Guatemala, where they collectively build houses, schools, and put their Spanish skills to use!
