STORIES FROM REAL LIFE

Joseph Sarosy lives in Northern New Mexico, where he teaches first grade without a school building. He has written for fatherly.com, kosmosjournal.org, and is widely respected in Taos as a dedicated and fun-loving father. In 2018, he initiated the #greatdad campaign to celebrate great dads across the country. His partner, Silke Markowski, a Waldorf kindergarten teacher with over 30 years of experience, co-founded the Taos Waldorf School in 1995, then left in 2016 to form Taos Earth Children, an independent forest kindergarten. Joe and Silke collaborate daily.
