Ghigs Razi, Class Six Teacher


Now in her 16th year with the Siskiyou School, Ghigs Razi is one of the school’s founding class teachers. She joined in 2004 during the pod years and served on the Board of the Siskiyou Initiative that brought the new school into being. She took her first class from 4th to 8th and her second class from 5th to 8th. Upon graduating her second class, she served as Class Assistant in the 1st grade for a year during which time she decided to pick up a third class—this time at the very beginning, in 1st grade. Ghigs is now in her sixth year with that class. Ghigs grew up in Washington, DC and Maine, and she attended Waldorf school for many of her elementary years.

Ghigs graduated from Colorado College in 2004 after taking two years off to study at the Rudolf Steiner College in Sacramento, CA. She and her partner, Michael, have two girls: Juniper (3rd grade) and Grace (1st grade).
