I would like to welcome Erin Commendatore to our school as the new Enrollment Coordinator. Erin was previously working as an Admission Director at an independent K-12 school in Charlotte, NC, where she organized student recruitment, hosted Open House events, and conducted daily tours at a private academy for children with learning disabilities. She has a MA degree in Educational Counseling from the University of Phoenix and a BA in Communications and Rhetoric from the University of Pittsburgh, and has an extensive background in admissions and enrollment work. Erin recently returned to the Pittsburgh area in 2007 and lives in the North Hills area with her two young sons and husband. She has a strong connection to Waldorf education and has visited the school in the past few years and attended open house events. She is actively involved in the yoga community in Pittsburgh and teaches pilates and yoga at many studios in the area.
She began her work with the school on June 21st and will train with Joan for two weeks before taking up the role of the Enrollment Coordinator on July 1st. Erin will be spending a lot of time reading and studying Waldorf education this summer, and Joan has agreed to serve as her mentor and spend her parent volunteer hours in the enrollment office transitioning Erin into her new role.
Please stop by the school this summer, introduce yourselves to her, share your Waldorf experiences with her and help her get immersed in our community quickly.
