Pedagogical Chair/Interim 6th Grade Teacher 2012-2013: Paula ThompSon
Although Paula has always felt a bond with children, she did not come to teaching until later in her life. She graduated with a major in journalism, specializing in advertising copy writing, and a minor in marketing. Although she had a very successful career in advertising in both Boston and New York City, she consciously made the choice to pursue a teaching career after nearly 20 years in advertising. After graduating from Rudolf Steiner College, she joined the faculty at Cedar Springs and has been teaching here since 1996.
