Tina DeSaussure

Faculty Member

Tina received her undergraduate, and law degree, from the University of Connecticut. She practiced corporate law for several years, but found herself yearning to be involved with Waldorf Education. After leaving the law firm, she led parent-child playgroups, and helped build a private Waldorf school in Weston, Connecticut. She also developed an early childhood program at Desert Marigold School in Phoenix, Arizona and became a Waldorf class teacher. The family moved to Austin, Texas in 2006 to join the Austin Waldorf School community.

Tina enjoys family time, horseback riding, camping, and knitting.

“My son started at Austin Waldorf in the 9th grade. He came from public school but was very excited about the change. The high school campout was the best thing that could have ever happened for my son. He formed very tight bonds over those days and truly began to feel like part of the family.”
