Cyndy Caughron
Cyndy Caughron and her husband, Dr. Sam Caughron, have been with CWS since 1998 when their daughter entered the Early Childhood program. Their daughter Anna graduated the 8th grade at CWS in 2010 and Cyndy is now serving as Business Manager at the school. What Cyndy enjoys most about her work here is hearing the children play outside her office door and her daily interactions with families, faculty, and other members of the Admin team. Some folks are surprised at all the silent letters in her last name. Caughron is pronounced like a core in an apple “Core-In”. 



Elizabeth Hale, Enrollment Director
Elizabeth is a welcome addition to our staff. She has been a substitute teacher at CWS for many years and has participated in the Foundation Studies program this past autumn. Her daughter Maezie attended our kindergarten several years ago and is currently in Mrs. Ryan's 4th grade class.


Michelle Schlesinger, Administrative Chair
Michelle has been an active member of the CWS community for over nine years. Her son, Aidan, is in the fifth grade and her daughter, Maya, is in the first grade. Michelle is a certified public accountant and has lent her financial and management expertise to our school since 2009, first as a board member, then as chairwoman of the Board of Trustees for three years, and currently as the Administrative Chair. In 2014 she graduated from the Foundation Studies Program, a two-year introduction to anthroposophy and the arts that was held on campus.

Camille Thompson
Camille is mother of Lillian in Ms. Stearns' kindergarten class. She was a substitute teacher, library volunteer, and parent at CWS before taking on her role as co-Office Manager in 2015. She is an avid knitter and had the pleasure of assisting in Mrs. Jolly's handwork class for a month last winter, inspiring her to become more involved at CWS. Camille grew up in Eastern Oregon and Northern California, and made her way to Virginia in high school. She attended the College of William and Mary, earning a B.A. in English, then completed a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from Rutgers University, and served as a youth services librarian in a public library in New Jersey for six years before taking some time off to be a full-time parent.

Michael arrived to CWS from the Tuscon Waldorf School, where he worked from 2008-2010 and 2011-2015 as a class teacher and from 2010-2011 as the faculty chair. Prior to that, Michael worked as either a class teacher or faculty chair at the Toronto Waldorf School and the Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School and as a guest Main Lesson Teacher at the City of Lakes Waldorf School. Michael completed his remedial training through the Association for Healing Education. In his free time, Michael enjoys music, drawing and painting, as well as spending time outdoors. We are very lucky that Michael and his wife Kate Walter, our new first grade teacher, have joined our community.
