Phaedra Cheydleur

Grade 4 Class Teacher

Location: Mariposa Campus

Hailing originally from the UK, Mrs. Cheydleur tucked a few years of drama and English literature studies into her world-view backpack and set her sights further afield. An incredible worldwide journey ended in a most unlikely City of Angels in winter of 1993, where she met her husband and planted permanent roots. She is the mother to two divine boys, one a graduate of Pasadena Waldorf High School and the other currently enrolled at PWHS.


In seeking out a particular alternative lifestyle and balanced education for our children, she became actively involved as a founding family for Ocean Charter School; a Waldorf inspired public school. Sharing fiber art workshops and penmanship to parents, students and teachers led to her interest in becoming a Waldorf teacher and was gifted a week-long painting course which in turn steered her way to teacher training with Waldorf Institute of Southern California, graduating in 2012. After 7 years of teaching early childhood, Mrs. Cheydleur was offered an opportunity to teach first grade at Pasadena Waldorf School in 2016. It is now her privilege and inspiration to stand before these inquiring minds, integrating her life experiences and love of children all in a day’s work!
