Professional development for Waldorf Teachers

Course Description

In today’s technological world, the quality of our human relationships is even more important than ever.  The Early Childhood teacher works, not only with the children in her classroom to model healthy relationships, but also with parents and colleagues in significant ways. 

Rudolf Steiner spoke about the various arts in relation to human development and referred to social art as the highest form of art.  In this intensive, we will explore how to more effectively practice the social arts in our relations with the children, in working with parents, in our collaboration with colleagues, and in building a sense of community within the school.

Our main theme will be enhanced by courses in improvisational theater games, where we learn how to listen and support one another in a playful way, and in watercolor painting, where we will explore the connection between feelings and the world of color.  We will also work with colored wool in our hand work course.
