Former High School Teacher Brings Wealth of Waldorf Experience

Altadena, CA, August 1, 2012: Pasadena Waldorf School (PWS) is pleased to announce that Daniel Hindes began his duties as the school’s Administrator this summer.

Daniel comes to PWS from Highland Hall Waldorf School in Northridge, where he worked with Board, staff, faculty, and parents to strengthen the school’s decision-making structure and communications. Prior to Highland Hall, Daniel taught high school history and humanities at the Waldorf School of Garden City (NY) and the Austin Waldorf School (TX).  He has experience in information systems administration and customer support, and served in the U.S. Army.

An alumnus of the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City, Hindes also studied at Waldorf-related institutions in Germany.  He possesses a Master of Science in Education and anticipates receiving a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2013. 

Hindes succeeds Carolyn Leach, who stepped down in June after serving as Administrator for five years. Working in a collaborative leadership arrangement, the Administrator oversees the day-to-day operations of the school, reporting to the Board of Trustees, while the College of Teachers oversees the Waldorf curriculum and faculty.

Pasadena Waldorf School, founded in 1979, is one of nearly 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide with over 90 years of experience offering inspired arts and science education. Pasadena Waldorf High School, which opened this year, joins 40 other Waldorf high schools now operating in North America. Waldorf education is the fastest growing independent school movement in the world.
