Why We Give from Chris Dowley & Laura Freysinger
Our son, Gavin, graduated from the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm in 2016. He is proficient in two foreign languages, plays violin in the school orchestra, plays two varsity sports, and maintains a grade point that lands him on “high honors” each semester. We credit his success to the process of learning that was his foundation here at the Waldorf School. It is not “what” he learned, but rather, how he learned it. It is not “academic rigor” that got him where he is, but rather the experiential environment and collaboration with his teachers and peers that won the day. Since then, natural curiosity and a steadfast work ethic have continued his success.
Why We Give: It’s Personal
This year on Giving Tuesday, I invite you to join me and my family in giving to the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm Fund.
When Paul and I returned with Alexander (then five) and Aylin (three) from our nine-year sailing circumnavigation of the globe, we looked for a school that would mirror the experiences to which they had been exposed during our life away. We sought an environment that would continue to nurture their innate curiosity, let them take risks, and allow them to learn through experiencing the world around them. We wanted a place where they would feel understood, heard, loved, respected, and supported. Finding and then joining this Waldorf community was a perfect fit.
