We hope you will join us this summer for a week-long course of professional development for Waldorf teachers with grades 1-5. This course will be held in-person at the Marin Waldorf School in San Rafael, CA. Register now with the link below.
Come together! Be creative!
Reflect and digest the past year and be inspired for the year ahead.
Discover the key elements of the curriculum that will guide you and your class along the next stage of the Waldorf journey.
This summer, we are focusing on how to meet the impact that two years of pandemic have had on our children and communities, and how the Waldorf approach and curriculum can support the child’s well-being and confidence. Nettie Fabrie and Wim Gottenbos will be our keynote presenters, bringing many years of experience to help us shape and deliver the math curriculum so that it is a source of healing and harmonizing strength in the children—and does not become a further source of anxiety and nervousness. They will develop the practice of math so that it provides an enlivening relationship to truth and a moral anchor in times of uncertainty and confusion.
During the week, we will dig deep to find the guiding thoughts and pedagogical principles underlying the curriculum that enable us to support the developing child in each grade.
Our very experienced faculty collaborates closely in order to provide a rich and diverse range of approaches to the curriculum. Each grade track will have lessons and gain insights from all of the faculty members. Each morning will begin with choir and eurythmy.
Faculty: Nettie Fabrie, Wim Gottenbos, Kristine Deason, Jeff Loubet, David French, and Ken Smith.
