Victoria Baker

Thimbleberries Teacher

Victoria is excited to begin her 6th year teaching at Greenwood Tree Educational Cooperative and to return to the Thimbleberry Kindergarten. She is the proud parent of two adult Waldorf alumni and has been part of the movement for Waldorf Education for over twenty years! As a young person, she was initially drawn to Waldorf by the beauty and intention she experienced in the Tacoma Waldorf School kindergarten and continues to be inspired by all of the vital and engaged elders still working and advocating for healthy childhood. Victoria is dedicated to the nurturing and protection of childhood and the child’s imagination through art, story, puppetry and doll play. She received her Master in Teaching from The Evergreen State College in 2004 and is delighted to be participating in Sound Circle's teacher training with several Greenwood Tree colleagues. The Social Inclusion and Simplicity Parenting work has been an important influence throughout her years in elementary and early childhood classrooms. Raised as an only child, in a large and loud extended family, she is gratified by the work of helping children and adults navigate the changes that come as a child grows and develops as well as the healthy conflicts that arise in our homes, the classroom, and the playground. Victoria feels blessed to work in this vibrant community, this beautiful valley, and by the power and wisdom of the local indigenous culture and history. She considers it an honor to share this golden moment of early childhood with the families of Greenwood Tree and looks forward to a rich and joyful year with the children and the vibrant community of Greenwood Tree. Victoria currently resides in North Everett, with her husband Jason, youngest son Cedar (Sunflowers) and Lily their very shy Bernese Mountain Dog.
