Clare Waite grew up in the suburbs of New York City but spent most of her adult years on the West Coast. She received her B.A. from Bennington College in music and English literature. She began her studies of the classical guitar at age eight and continued on that path professionally through her thirties. She was an adjunct professor at three San Francisco Bay Area Colleges, had a full and lively private studio, and performed frequently throughout Northern California as a soloist and ensemble player. As her two sons approached school age, she became consumed with the matter of their education. After exploring the spectrum of educational modalities, she became enthralled with Dr. Steiner's philosophy of education. She
completed her Waldorf teacher training in Rudolf Steiner College's San Francisco program. After teaching specialty subjects for a few years, she became a class teacher and has taught at Camellia Waldorf School in Sacramento, CA, Charlottesville Waldorf School in VA, and Upper Valley Waldorf School in VT. She is married to Peter Waite (31 years!) and has two grown sons, Tobias and Avery, both served well by their rich Waldorf educations.She enjoys spending her free time reading, writing, knitting, making music, and
cooking and loves adventurous travel.
