My name is Sandi Russi and I am the founder of WLR. When our youngest son was about four years old, our family discovered the path of home education and, perhaps like you, tentatively put that first toe in the water. Within a year or so, one of our friends from W.I.S.H. (Waldorf-Inspired Sacramento Homeschoolers) found a wonderful art teacher, and we sought other specialty teachers. But we were not interested in driving multiple times a week to escort our children to various classes! We dreamed about a one-day-a-week program where our children could partake in Waldorf specialty classes, including Art, Eurythmy, Handwork and others.
As W.I.S.H. grew, it became apparent that the time for such a program was ripe. So pulling together the necessary resources, in 2010, WLR was born out of that vision.
Although my youngest son recently graduated from high school, I still enjoy connecting with the local homeschooling community and sharing these classes and programs; and I hope you enjoy exploring this website (currently being revised!). You’ll find class descriptions, photos, teacher biographies, testimonials from our families, and information on the Vision and Mission of WLR. The class schedule is updated 8-12 weeks before the start of each session, and registration opens around the same time.
Thank you for stopping by on your homeschooling journey! If you have any questions about our classes or programs, or about homeschooling in general, feel free to call me any time.
