Teacher Training Program

"Through study we cannot become teachers. We cannot drill others into being teachers, because each one of us is already a teacher. Every human being is a teacher but he is sleeping and must be awakened, and art is the awakener. Nevertheless he will still be a good teacher because it does not depend on the giving out of knowledge but on activating the individuality of the soul upon the pre-earthly existence. Then it is really the child who educates himself through us. And that is the truth. In reality we do not educate at all. We only disturb the process of education when we intervene too energetically. We only educate when we behave in such a way that through our own behavior the child can educate himself. " - Rudolf Steiner

Teacher Training Program

This program prepares students to practice Waldorf education in early childhood and grade school environments. Through an intensive format that integrates Foundation studies over 25 months, students are immersed in the theory and practice of Waldorf education so that they are well-prepared and confident to work with children.

"What is important is that teachers become capable in the presence of each child and in each moment to newly form and reform the educational task. For the true teacher, pedagogy must be something living, something new at each moment….We could even say that the best pedagogy–stated radically–is one that the teacher continually forgets and that is continually reignited each time the teacher is in the presence of the children and sees in the them living powers of developing human nature."

— Rudolf Steiner, The Spirit of the Waldorf School
