Faculty and staff for Nursery (Preschool)

Jan Lopez

Nursery Teacher

Liz Lichtman

Office Manager, Peniston Location

Besides working as the office manager at the Waldorf School, Liz helps run a community bike shop in the upper 9th ward (called RUBARB) in which people come to work on and learn about bikes, and kids participate in an earn-a-bike program, art projects, and field trips. Before her New Orleans life, she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Malawi, got her Master's degree in International Education, and explored South America and Southeast Asia. She enjoys music, food, laughter, traveling by bike, and her favorite Sunday thing to do is attending second line parades. She admires people who grow their own food, build things, and have creative minds. She's grateful to have the opportunity to work with the Waldorf School! 

Liz is currently on Maternity Leave, and her replacement has yet to be determined.
