Margie Glatte, Games
A fifth generation Oregonian born into a family of ten, Margie grew up on a farm in the Willamette Valley in a community graced with many relatives. She graduated with a BA from the University of Oregon in German Language & Literature and a teaching certificate from Southern Oregon University. She was the German teacher at the Waldorf School of the Rogue Valley for ten years and also ran a kayaking company for kids with her husband, Hayden. When the old school closed, Margie went to work as a substitute teacher in the Medford public school system. Struck by the needs she saw, she undertook training as a remedial specialist. She received certifications through the Rudolf Steiner College in Sacramento, CA and the HANDLE Institute in Seattle, WA. In 2008 she joined the Siskiyou School staff as our Games teacher—a job that calls on all her skills and loves: children, therapeutic movement, the outdoors. Each April under Margie’s leadership the Siskiyou School hosts the Medieval Games for the 6th grade
Waldorf classes of Southern Oregon. Each May Margie also helps coordinate the Olympiad for the 5th grade Waldorf classes of Southern Oregon.
