13 Oct Anja Traub – Educator
Anja Traub, the daughter of a German Space Scientist, grew up and studied in America. She then moved to Germany spending 18 years as a violinist with the Munich Philharmonic before living in Spain. Her children received a Waldorf Steiner education and Anja supported the local Waldorf primary school. She identified the need for adolescent education with a Steiner-Waldorf orientation and created AIS International School in Alicante in 2012. She took on the role of head-teacher while completing her Post Graduate Certificate in Education. A community builder and passionate educator, Anja feels that children need a ground where they can thrive, grow and be nourished by the warmth of their educators. For Anja, parenting has the same value in her life as her career and she sees AIS as a mirror image of her vision for her own children – for school to be the seed for adult life and for children to be able to develop the confidence to be true to themselves – to be authentic.
