Marie-Christine Lhomond

Joe Millon

Marie Christine was born in France and enjoyed a happy childhood. After graduating with a baccalaureate in sciences, she worked as a social worker until moving to the United States. In 1993, she began training to become a Waldorf Kindergarten teacher at the Waldorf Teacher Training center in Eugene, studying under master teachers Willi Muller and Ilse Kolbuszowski. After graduating from the training, Marie-Christine became a teacher at the Eugene Waldorf School where she assisted Mrs. Shippull, a teacher of great experience, for three years. She then became the Rosebud Preschool teacher and later the teacher in the Rose and Sunflower Kindergartens. At her home, Marie-Christine has raised four children, all Waldorf students, who now are healthy and competent adults.

In the course of the years, her involvement at the school has been extensive. She actively participated in re-creating the College of Teachers, was a member of the Board of directors for many years as well as being part of the Finance Circle. She has served on many committees such as PR, Care Group, Admissions, the Summer Arts Program, the After School Care Group and others.

Though Marie-Christine is strongly involved in many endeavors at the Eugene Waldorf School, her great care is for the children in her class. To improve her understanding and skills, she regularly participates in Waldorf early childhood conferences and Anthroposophical conferences in France, Canada and the United States. The school appreciates Marie-Christine’s diligence and expertise and regularly calls upon her to mentor other teachers in the Early Childhood Program.
