We are delighted and very pleased to welcome Daniel Nordass as the first grade class teacher.
Daniel received his Bachelor degree in Graphic Design and music (violin) from Sacramento State University and also acquired his Waldorf Teacher Certificate from Rudolf Steiner College in May 2011. Daniel worked as a class teacher at the Camellia Waldorf School taking a class through 1st-4th.
Mrs. Keyser Petty has served the Golden Valley community in many ways: as class parent for her son (now a graduate of Golden Valley), as Golden Valley Educational Foundation (GVEF) president, office sub, and most recently as the Handwork Specialist for 5th thru 8th grade. She learned everything she knows about Handwork from her Mom-mom (grandmother), and she thanks her for instilling a love all things handwork!
On the evening of April 26th during the San Juan Unified School District Board meeting, fifth graders Esther Sullivan and Wyatt Kerr stood up to communicate the importance of our May Day Festival and to personally invite members of the board. Third graders Seneca Ikemire and Grace Kerr and first grader Kusha Hosseinion stood up as well.
Each of these students presented handmade invitations for each board member. Golden Valley Orchard School teachers Ms. Sullivan, Ms. Cortez, and Ms. Hidden coordinated the making of the student invitations.
