Donni O’Ryan has been a Waldorf teacher since 1994, after graduating from the RSC Extension Program, and has been teaching the Movement curriculum to children and adults both in the U.S. and abroad for 24 years. She has visited several schools to help them develop movement curriculums that integrated with their unique spaces.
Donni graduated from the Spacial Dynamics Institute in 1999. She has hosted the Bay Area Pentathlon for 15 years and the new 6th grade Global Games for 5 years. In 2011, she developed (and continues to teach) a successful Environmental Education program for middle school students at Marin Waldorf School. Having recently discovered an interest in Outdoor Kindergarten teaching, she developed the Forest Children program in 2016 for older kindergarteners.
Donni loves to garden, hike, and spend time with her husband, dogs, sons and grandson. She has taught games and movement at BACWTT since 2010.
