Michaela Precourt

Ms. Precourt grew up in New England exploring the snow-capped mountains, rocky ledges, and beautiful shorelines. Teaching has been part of her life since she was young; in addition to school, she has taught swimming, life guarding, and various outdoor activities. She graduated with honors from Prescott College with a Bachelor of Arts in Adventure Education and a minor in Snow Science.

Through her years of traveling and studying, Ms. Precourt realized that Expeditionary Learning and Waldorf education supported and aligned with her goals in teaching about awareness of self, others, and nature. She took the plunge back into higher education to attend Antioch University in Keene, NH.  She graduated with a Masters in Elementary Education and earned her Waldorf Teacher certification. In her eyes, each child comes into this world with many gifts. Teaching is about helping guide and instruct that child to their full individual potential. She is excited to be teaching at the Methow Valley Community School, where she can bring her passion to teaching and community-minded projects to the Valley!

When Ms. Precourt is not teaching, she is often busy planning big expeditions to remote parts of the world. She also enjoys yoga, backcountry snowboarding, painting, and climbing trees and rocks.
