Office Manager-Vanessa Lovato
I was born and raised in Taos, NM. I graduated from Taos High School and then attended UNM’s Anderson School of Management. I have two daughters currently enrolled in Taos Waldorf School. I have been employed in various management positions over the years, and am very happy to have found Taos Waldorf School for my daughters as well as myself.
Events Coordinator-Joanna Magee
I obtained both my degrees from the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada, graduating with a Bachelor's degree in 1999 after majoring in sociology and minoring in philosophy and a Master's of Social Work degree in 2004. Since that time I have practiced clinical social work with adolescents, children, their families and their systems, both in Toronto and in Taos, working in a variety of settings ranging from educational institutions and children’s mental health agencies to the juvenile justice and child protection systems.
When my first son was born almost four years ago, I choose to stay home to raise him and his little brother who followed shortly after. It was when my husband and myself began to look for a school for our oldest son that I became involved in the Waldorf world and Taos Waldorf School. At present, I joyfully sit on the TWS Board as a non-voting member, I have been hired as the school's Event's Coordinator and I run the ATA (Accessible to All) tuition adjustment program as a volunteer.
Grounds and Gardens-Barry Doucette
Long time biodynamic gardener and general student of "all things green". Has worked on multiple projects from sub-arctic root cellaring, teaching permaculture, to heading Transition Town movements. Happy to find himself in Taos, NM where the growing season is definitely longer than his native Alaska.
