Cynthea Frongillo, Third Grade
Cynthea Frongillo is a Bostonian by birth, but has been transplanted many times. After attending the University of Massachusetts, she and her husband built two houses from scratch in western Massachusetts, before heading off to the Waldorf Teacher Training Program in Detroit, Michigan. Since that time, Cynthea has been a class teacher and music teacher at the Canterbury Steiner School in England, The Honolulu Waldorf School in Hawaii, and Pine Hill Waldorf School in New Hampshire, where she was the Music Director and Choral Director for ten years before once again taking up the life of a class teacher. Her experiences as a music teacher for many years led her to write “The Importance of Being Musical,” a guide
to music teaching in a Waldorf School, published by AWSNA, and reprinted many times. Her hobbies are gardening, painting, and writing.
