Mrs. Fallon is excited to begin the second decade of her teaching career with this Waldorf community. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire with a degree in Elementary Education and Spanish. She later earned her Masters in Reading and Writing Education from the University of Houston. Mikalah loves how the Waldorf education focuses on the whole child; head, hands, and heart. She is passionate about allowing students to help guide the lessons while they make meaningful discoveries and connections through exploration.
Mikalah believes that each child is unique, with strengths all their own. Through loving encouragement and student-centered support, each child is capable of doing new and challenging things.
"A central objective of Waldorf teaching is to create a sense of wonder about each subject, even math." -Todd Oppenheimer, The Atlantic
Prairie Hill Waldorf School is committed to excellence in academics. The Waldorf approach aligns with current educational theory that learning should be age appropriate and multi-sensory, acquired not only through sight and sound, but also through touch, movement, imagination, and feeling. Students receive a comprehensive education that not only engages the intellect, but the whole child through head, heart and hands – an education that integrates the artistic and creative with the scientific and intellectual study.
