Sophie von Hunnius

Fifth Grade Assistant Teacher

Sophie von Hunnius grew up in Boston, MA, and took the first opportunity that presented itself to move to sunny California in 2014. They have journeyed the roles of student and teacher on both the East and West Coasts, guided by their dedication to collective learning and liberation. Sophie’s lifelong aspiration to experience aliveness, learn from each other and the world, and share intergenerational wisdom and insights has brought them to Black Pine Circle School—a culmination and integration of their previous work experiences, their fundamental desire to live a values-aligned life, and finding unending joy in working with younger people. Sophie is excited to continue learning and growing alongside their students, colleagues, and the entire Black Pine Circle community as the fifth grade assistant teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. They joined BPC in 2020.
