Richard Aguilo Richard Aguilo: This is a life’s journey. Growing up I was a fast learner and intelligent. I would understand the material quicker than my peers; this didn’t necessarily translate to me being the most engaged student. After graduating high school I had high hopes of becoming an elementary school teacher. After my grandmother passed away my final year of college, I felt life was too precious to not have your heart in your work. I set off to California to work on an organic, off the grid, farm. Since then I pursued many of my passions, of which being a husband and father are the greatest of them. Currently I’m the first grade teacher at the Waldorf charter, NUA Sparrow, in La Mesa, CA.

Angela Sarich Angela Sarich: I grew up in Hawaii and worked in the fashion industry for many years. After becoming a mother and recognizing my love of children combined with countless years of experience as babysitter and live-in nanny, I needed to embark upon a journey of change, which brought me to San Diego to attend WISC for my Early Childhood and Grades Certification. I am the third generation to study Steiner's work in esoteric studies in my family. I have been devoted to this study as it pertains to self-development throughout my life.

During my first year of WISC studies I became the nature and gardening teacher at Spirit Mountain School. The following year I had the honor of becoming the new grade one teacher with Lori Duckstad as my mentor. This school year is my second year of class teaching for our small pioneering school. I have been honored to be a part of this school’s blossoming. I have discovered so much in this journey and look forward to many more years of this work ahead of me.

Shea Saint John Shea Saint John: Although originally from San Luis Obispo California, I come to WISC from The Alkion Center located in the Hawthorne Valley, NY. While in Upstate New York, I was enlivened by biodynamic beekeeping and gardening on a hobby farm. I come from a long line of teachers and I’m bringing my background in Early Childhood Education to my future work in the grades. I am passionate about Curative Education and feel this is critical information to our modern times. I love spending time with my five children (ages 22 to 1) traveling, camping, and being outdoors. I also enjoy many practical arts: stained glass, sculpting, basketry, canning, and baking.
