Lynn Arches, a Waldorf educator for 18 years, teaches, mentors and evaluates Middle School students, grades six – eight, in chemistry, physics, earth science, biology and math. A seven-time honoree in Who’s Who Among American Teachers, Lynn’s research on the metabolic process of the female Denning polar bear and desalinization led to her collaboration with leading polar bear researchers. She attended Cal State Northridge, Cleveland Chiropractic School and the Center for Anthroposophy, and is the creator of math and science curricula currently in use by the University of California as standards for other schools to follow. Lynn volunteers for her own nonprofit, Women for H20, as well as the water and education project Sisters for Peace. Her three children are graduates of Highland Hall Waldorf School in Los Angeles.
