New School Year, New Leadership for Susquehanna Waldorf School

As the 2018-19 school year begins, the Susquehanna Waldorf School is thrilled to announce Tim Altieri as their new School Administrator. The position is a new venture for SWS, and the faculty is looking forward to working collaboratively with Tim in this leadership role to navigate daily logistics as well as fulfill the school’s mission of providing a rich, challenging environment that inspires students to reach the highest levels of intellectual, spiritual, artistic, and physical achievement.

“Our search has given us someone who will support and nurture our educational process and carry out the myriad tasks required for the efficient running of a successful school, giving our teachers the opportunity to continue their good, heartfelt work,” comments Rochelle Dietz, Class Three teacher and the school’s 2018-19 Pedagogical Chair. Tim holds a Bachelor’s degree in Natural Science (Lock Haven University) and Master’s degrees in Environmental Education (Arcadia University) and Educational Leadership (Millersville University). His credentials also include the Pennsylvania PK-12 Principal certification. Tim recently retired after 27 years from public education in the School District of Lancaster, where his roles included teacher, small learning community facilitator, and assistant principal. Early in his career, Tim worked as a naturalist with the Lancaster County Environmental Center, teaching groups of all ages and leading educational hikes in parks and natural areas. Tim also lived in the Central African Republic as a Peace Corps Volunteer.

SWS is pleased to welcome a professional of Tim’s caliber to their school community. Says Ronald H. Pollock, SWS Board President, “Tim’s experience, personality and dedication to the students will support us as we continue delivering a beautiful, distinctive Waldorf education to the community.”
