Lead Teacher (occasional) Caela Bolton completed her Bachelor of Education in 2011 from Queen’s University. She holds a Joint Honors Bachelor of Science in Health Studies and Psychology from the University of Waterloo and has furthered her professional development by taking an AQ course of Special Education Behaviour and levels 101 and 102 of Sign Language from the Canadian Hearing Society. Over the years she has combined her love of working with children and her love of travel, resulting in being a teacher, teaching assistant, respite worker and nanny in Ireland, England and Canada. She is also a great lover of the outdoors, whether it is taking intensive hiking and camping trips in places like Peru and Iceland, being part of a hill walking club that goes rain or shine in Ireland, or simply taking a walk through a wonderful lake side area in Kingston. Caela also comes from a very friendly, energetic and eclectic family and as such has really enjoyed and felt at home in the wonderfully inclusive family community that she has found with the Mulberry Waldorf School and extended community.
