Cori Royer grew up in San Diego, California where she taught swim lessons for nine summers.
She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Photography, with a minor in Education, at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She worked in a pre-school for two years before getting her Teaching Credential at Humboldt State University in Arcata, California. Following that, she was an AmeriCorps member for two years working at an elementary school where she specialized in one-on-one reading intervention and games during recess and at the after school program.
She felt very lucky and blessed to get her next job at Salmon Creek Community School, a small, rural, private, Waldorf-inspired school where she taught a mixed grade class of 3rd-5th graders for three years.
After moving to Oregon, she took a year off of work to house hunt and have a baby. In her free time she loves to garden, go on hikes, knit, and spent time with her daughter.
Cori is currently the games teacher, and an occasional substitute teacher, at Madrone Trail.
