An Irish national, Caroline Martin began teaching chemistry at the Rudolf Steiner School in 2019. As a parent of two young daughters, she was drawn to Waldorf education to support their healthy growth and development. Before teaching at Steiner, Caroline studied geology at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and in 2013 earned her PhD in geochemistry from the University of Cambridge. Caroline also studied at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University and at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where she was a Fulbright scholar. Outside of the classroom, Caroline can be found wading in rivers, swimming in cold coastal waters, or immersed in Victorian fiction.
