Katie Eckl was born and raised in Chicago, IL. She has always known she wanted to be a teacher and she followed her calling with a B.S. in Education and a partial Masters from the University of Kansas.
After several years teaching in the public school realm Katie "defected" and began a search and study of alternative models of Education. The one that most deeply resonated with her and her children was Waldorf!
Katie is a graduate of the Waldorf Institute of Southern California and has taught at the City School since 2014 as both a class teacher and PreK assistant.
In her spare time she loves to be with her husband and two boys, both at The City School, in 2nd and 7th grade. She also loves to be in nature, take walks, read and bake!
