Principal, Tallgrass Sudbury School

Riverside, Illinois

Elizabeth Lund is the principal of Tallgrass Sudbury School, a self-directed private school in Riverside, IL.

Elizabeth has been involved with Tallgrass since 2010, first as a volunteer and now as a full-time staff member. She is a writer of young adult books and a professional editor. She grew up as an army brat and has lived in five states and three countries, and she holds an English degree from St. Olaf College.

Elizabeth went to conventional public schools, but has had a lifelong interest in alternative education. She became involved with Sudbury education after staffing at Not Back to School Camp, a camp for unschooling teens. Her other interests include investing, birds, singing and dancing for the joy of it, and the academic study of children’s and young adult literature, especially the work of Maud Hart Lovelace.
