Kristin Buckbee has forged through the fire of government attacks on how she chooses to raise her children. Standing up, activating herself and getting outspoken, her family is now a beacon of support for families seeking to find a way across the fear and uncertainty of the abyss between Institutional dependancy and independent co-creative community.
Kristin Buckbee is a community organizer, Waldorf teacher, researcher and parent living in upstate NY.
Over the years she has taught most grades, early childhood through high school, in both traditional Waldorf school settings, as well as many alternative school forms. Deeper questions around the nature of learning in our times brought her to initiate a new, mixed-aged, school form which just finished its third year.
Kristin has a deep interest in researching child development and the nature of learning in the context of our modern, digital world. She works with different organizations that do research into the effects of materialism on the development of human consciousness, especially in the stages of childhood and adolescence. She is a member of the pedagogical section and on the board of the Center for Contextual Studies, an organization with an interest in facilitating conversation around new forms in education.
