Catalina De Luna Garza was born to a large family and raised, along with seven siblings, in a small town in Northern Mexico. As a child she loved horses, outdoor life in the family’s farm, and feeling the wind in her face. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Legal Studies from the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León with hopes of being part of the change she still dreams of for her country, and the world. Teaching became Catalina’s passion even before she had completed college. She started teaching at only 18 years old and soon realized education was the best way to see a change in the world. Catalina attended el Centro Antroposófico de México for her Waldorf teacher training and joined the Waldorf School of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico as a class teacher where she taught for seven years. She moved to Atlanta with her two daughters, to teach at WSA in 2010, and in 2014 she earned a M. Ed. in Waldorf Education from Antioch New England. Catalina is passionate about language, and poetry; she enjoys being with her family and friends, especially when gathered to cook and share a meal or engage in a deep conversation with a cafecito. She is dedicated to serving childhood education and understanding the spiritual development of humanity for social renewal as the foundation to build new communities for the future.
