"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
Professional Development Offerings for Practicing Teachers
SCC is pleased to announce it’s revised programs for Summer 2020. In response to the needs of teachers, potential teachers, and school leaders everywhere, we have reshaped our summer offerings. We will continue our striving to provide engaging, transformative co-creative learning experiences that lead to new capacities, insights, and competencies needed by today’s teachers and leaders.
Professional Development Programs
Our professional development programs for practicing teachers are being postponed until summer 2021.
Our teacher training program, with current cohorts in EC and GS, will continue this summer with a hybrid of online and in-person (government regulations permitting) programs, making the best of both modalities.
The following programs are still available:
Certificate Completion Program
Last fall we launched a new program to support experienced teachers who never completed their certification in getting their Waldorf teaching certificate. The program requires 5 weeks of coursework in our ongoing teacher education program, in topic areas that meet the remaining needs of the participant, independent research and study, and mentoring. For complete information, see the description on our website.
Leading with Spirit: Leadership Training
Our ongoing professional development program for school leaders and administrative staff will be completed online this summer. See the flyer on our website for dates.
