Javier Alvarez, Class One Teacher
Javier Alvarez began his teaching career at the San Francisco Waldorf High School in 1999. Inspired by the quality of work, clarity of thoughts, and loving nature of those high school students, he found his calling as a Waldorf teacher. Javier completed his teacher training in 2005 and graduated his first class from Summerfield Waldorf School in 2007. Javier was born in Mexico City, grew up in the Philadelphia area, and graduated from the University of North Carolina. After a few years in Taos, New Mexico, he is thrilled to be living in Ashland and sharing his passion for Waldorf education with the Siskiyou School community. Javier enjoys exploring the outdoors in search of pristine swimming holes, breathtaking vistas, and fresh powder. Javier is blessed with two magical daughters, Luna, a Siskiyou School graduate and senior at AHS, and Mercy, an 8th grader at the school.
