Guess Who? Valerie Aas « City of Lakes Waldorf School [cached]

Valerie Aas

It was a bit tricky to pick this week's Guess Who from the trio of pageant contestants in this photo. (I did give a hint though: Look for the Brunette!) Many of you had no trouble recognizing her- as City of Lakes Waldorf School's Development Director, Valerie Aas has met nearly everyone! This week, she and I sat down to talk about how her family discovered Waldorf, her favorite part of family dinners and how her Development role has helped her personal development.
Valerie first heard about Waldorf through Deb Renshaw, a colleague at another non-profit.
Valerie remembers the conversation clearly. "She said, 'If you ever have children, send them to a Waldorf School. Just trust me.' " That comment was buried deeply, and the little seed sprouted to the surface when it came time to choose a pre-school for her daughter four years and a half years later.
Valerie began researching Waldorf schools in the area, and discovered City of Lakes Waldorf School's website. As she perused the pages, she discovered a posting for a Development Director, a role she'd held for several years at another nonprofit. "I laughed, and thought it was just a funny coincidence. But when she came across the posting again a week later, she thought "Wouldn't it be convenient to tour the school and interview all at once? She chuckles at the memory.
What began with ordinary research into her daughter's education quickly brought her to a deeper understanding of what City of Lakes Waldorf School had to offer her family. She vividly remembers the way she felt when she walked through the front doors. "When I walked through the threshold, all of my senses were immediately engaged- the smell, the aesthetics...Everything felt amazing - unlike what I'd expected, but everything I hoped for."
The emotional response surprised her, but she believes it was her intuition telling her she was exactly where she needed to be. She went into the interview team, everyone seated in a circle, each taking turns asking questions. Valerie had prepared herself professionally for this moment, and thought she knew what to expect. She had facts and figures at the ready and was looking forward to impressing the group.
Watching her daughter grow, change and thrive in the school has been profound for Valerie.
