Welcome New Members of the Board of Trustees

My name is Tammy Carpanini and I have been a part of the Waldorf community for 7 years. My WSL journey began as a parent to my daughter, Mia, who is currently in class Eger, followed by four lovely years as a WSL Grades teacher and faculty member.

I have a degree in Psychology from Bellarmine University and attended Antioch University New England where I received my Waldorf Teaching Certification. I am now working as a full-time Realtor, where I continue to serve and enjoy education in a different light. 

As a trustee, I’m excited to contribute fresh ideas to our school programming and student support, while upholding and strengthening our Anthroposophical values and financial well-being. 

Being a former elementary Waldorf student, faculty member, and parent, I hope to offer balanced insight: to best serve our children, our parent body, and our faculty as a whole.

Our family joined Waldorf School of Louisville in 2015 when our oldest son Greyson attended the “Mommy and me” program with Ms. Janna.

I work in the financial sector as the Chief Information Security Officer for a regional bank, and have served on the boards of numerous non-profit organizations in the community providing IT, security, and financial recommendations.  I currently serve on the marketing committee at the school, and hope to assist in other areas moving forward.

My wife Ryann and I have been actively involved with the school from the beginning, whether it be serving as the class parent or participating in work-days and fund raising efforts.  I look forward to helping the school grow and thrive in any capacity in which I can contribute, as well as seeing our sons continue to flourish at WSL.

Hands-On Community Event- Clay Bowl Making

We’re excited to announce that this Spring, WSL will host a Stone Soup Dinner and Fundraiser (more exciting details to come soon!). 

Proceeds from the event will go towards our growing Classroom to Kitchen Program, which aims to create a student-managed, suburban farm that provides organic, school-grown lunches for our student body. 

Guests  purchase a bowl as entry to the dinner we’ll share, which entitles them to a variety of soups made with love and to a delightful meal with family, friends and community. At the end of the evening, each guest takes home their unique bowl.

This means we’re going to need a lot of bowls!!!

These handmade treasures are being crafted by WSL students and faculty and now we’re extending the invitation to  participate in this unique and artistic endeavor for most ages- no experience is necessary.

We are hosting three bowl making workshops in the WSL cafeteria- that’s three opportunities for you to get your hands dirty and join in the fun of making ceramic bowls with us!

Please sign up as space is limited- CLICK HERE to save your spot. Children are invited to join with adult participation.

Community Association




Community Education - Open to All!

WSL Book Study

Miss Dayna is offering FREE days for interested families to attend and try out WSL’s Parent/Child program, serving caregivers and their young ones from birth to age 4! 

Our Parent/Child program supports & empowers parents during the early years and at the same time provides a social, enriching atmosphere for the youngest students on our campus. It is one of the most treasured aspects of a Waldorf education, and  often the foundation for a lifelong connection to Waldorf School of Louisville.

If you or someone you know would like to attend, CLICK HERE to register!

Welcome New Staff- Rebecca Bartlett

I have been part of the WSL since my oldest child, Jasmin, started Parent Child in 2011.  She will be graduating this year. I also have Hannah and Addison in Morning Glory Kindergarten.  My husband, Greg, and I have always been active parents in the community and I am excited to now also be working for the school!  This is my 9th year as a Class Parent, and I have served on the Finance Committee for several years.  I have a CPA license and experience working for a board of trustees in local government, as well as volunteering for other organizations as a board member and treasurer.    We are still aligning tasks, but my primary role as Business Manager will be to handle the financial aspects of the school.   I will be responsible for bookkeeping, payroll, financial management and reporting.  

If you see Rebecca, say hello and welcome!!!
