Sarah Guneratne, Class Assistant, 1st Grade


Sarah Guneratne’s passion for Waldorf education began at The Children’s Garden, a Waldorf kindergarten in Ashland where she served as Assistant Teacher for two years. Her experience there inspired her to pursue Waldorf teacher training, and she is currently on track to receive her Masters in Waldorf Education in 2020 from Antioch University, NH. Her connection with the Siskiyou School began in the 2016-17 when she taught yoga to several of our classes. The following year Sarah took up the additional role of Class Assistant. This is her third year as Class Assistant. Sarah holds a master’s in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture from the World Medicine Institute in Honolulu as well as a B.A. in Liberal Arts from Colorado State University. In addition to her work at the Siskiyou School, Sarah teaches yoga and meditation classes in town. Sarah lives in Ashland with her partner, Garrett, and daughter, Rhea, a 2nd grader at the school.
