Orien Mann, Cherry Blossoms Class Assistant Teacher

Orien moved to Boulder in 2006 from Austin, Texas. She attended Naropa University where she received a bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. She has worked at BWK in various rolls since 2009: Assistant Teacher, Lead Toddler Teacher, Lead Summer Camp Teacher, and most recently Lead Kindergarten Teacher. She has completed her Lifeways Waldorf certification and has begun her Waldorf teacher training through Sound Circle Center, Seattle.  

Miss Orien loves being with children and connecting through songs, stories, nature and seasonal handwork. She loves crafting of all sorts and especially loves to knit, sew and make waldorf dolls. She enjoys traveling with her family and spending time outside looking for birds and bugs with her little girl. Orien is excited to be back in the classroom with the little ones this year to share in the magic of the Waldorf Kindergarten.
