Jolie Luba was born in Philadelphia, and moved to São Paulo, Brazil as a child. When one of her two brothers joined a Waldorf kindergarten, the whole family was drawn to Waldorf Education in different ways. Jolie received her degree from the University of São Paulo as a Psychologist, and after that she earned her Waldorf Early Childhood certification from Casa de Cultura Três Fontes - Campinas, SP. Jolie taught English as a Second Language to children and adults for many years in Waldorf Schools and other environments before moving to Atlanta when her husband was invited to Georgia State University as a Post Doctorate researcher. Jolie taught in our school's kindergarten program from 2006 to 2012. For two years before returning to WSA in 2014, Jolie worked in the Brazilian public school system, offering continuing education lectures about Waldorf philosophy, and also mentoring at Escola Jardim Primavera, a Waldorf initiative in Ubatuba, SP. Jolie's hobbies, besides learning more about Anthroposophy, include dancing and skygazing.
