Our teacher Evelyn is a graduate of UMCA Costa Rica with a degree in elementary school teaching. She has been the heart of Escuelita Finca Mia since 2017.
Evelyn grew up in the Chirripo mountain valley, she is the oldest of four children. She says that what she values most about her upbringing is the love and the respect for individuality that her parents fostered in the family.
The most treasured part about Evelyn’s days at escuelita is what the kids teach her everyday, "leaning from them is magical, and it is that magic that tells me, everyday, that I choose the best profession in the world!"
Evelyn is committed to training and growing as a Waldorf teacher, This year she will start her elementary school Waldorf teacher training at Centro de Desarrollo Antroposófico in Mexico. It is the beginning of a 5 year journey and the school is committed to sponsoring Evelyn in her studies thanks to the support and donations from friends and community.
