School DirectorUrvi Morrison
Welcome, everyone, to Waldorf School at Moraine Farm!
Now more than ever, the world needs independent thinkers who have a true interest in humanity and who are capable of creatively meeting the challenges of this time.
At Waldorf School at Moraine Farm, we help our students explore their world by asking challenging questions and helping them find meaningful answers. In the process, they develop a passion for learning and an instinct for independent thinking that lasts a lifetime.
How do we achieve this? Through three approaches:
- Through Arts. We weave arts and creativity into all our academic disciplines – from nursery through eighth grade – to enhance and enrich learning. You’ll find that music fills out hallways, paintings line our walls, and movement and rhythms shape our days.
- Through Nature. We integrate nature into our curriculum, with students often spending the majority of their day in outdoor classes. Tucked into 200+ acres of Frederick Law Olmsted-designed meadows, pine forests, and lakes, our campus is a natural classroom.
- Holistically. Waldorf teaches through a whole-child model, commonly known in Waldorf circles as “head, heart, and hands.” We engage students intellectually, emotionally, and physically through our balanced, practical, and integrated curriculum. Students at WSMF develop confidence as independent thinkers, creative doers, and stewards of our earth.
It is an honor and privilege to serve as School Director at Waldorf School at Moraine Farm. With a 35 year history in Massachusetts’ North Shore behind us, we have decades of rich and child-centered experiences ahead of us.
With love and gratitude,
It is a great pleasure to announce that Urvi Morrison is joining Waldorf School at Moraine Farm as School Director.
Urvi brings high-caliber organizational leadership blended with educational experience –both in the classroom as a middle school teacher and as a member on multiple private school boards.
“Today I walk with a lighter step. Why, do you ask? A new member of our community has agreed to join us on our collective journey to discover and re-discover what a Waldorf education means in our time. This is the same journey that a small number of us began in the mid-1980s. Let us all accompany Urvi Morrison as she takes the next steps with us. Welcome, Urvi!” —Karl Pulkkinen, founding school member
I’m excited by Urvi’s experience as an entrepreneur, leader in education, and commitment to learning. I think her energy and skill set can elevate our school community as we strive to broaden our reach and impact.
A life-long learner and outdoor enthusiast, Urvi brings the strength of her experiences in education, technology and science, and business along with her joyful excitement about this position and the sense of connection and groundedness that she already feels. Throughout this process, she has been consistent in her deep, thoughtful research about our school and the Waldorf curriculum, as well as anthroposophy and it’s spiritual underpinnings. Urvi has already developed ideas for our strategic imperatives to help bring our community into a stable place of thriving. As the world shifts and changes with COVID and the anti-racism movement, Urvi brings an approach balanced with awareness and openness, ready to be a partner on our journey. She is a light and I am thrilled to welcome, and be an ally to, such a dynamic and curious thought leader to our community.
