Become A Waldorf Teacher

Waldorf teachers lead young minds out into the wider world of knowledge, but that’s only part of the journey. We believe that true learning engages the heart and hands as well as the mind. As a certified Waldorf teacher you’ll learn how handwork channels a child’s creativity even as it improves focus. You’ll explore fine arts, classical thought, world religions, and the history of science, providing your students with moral exemplars and a firm grounding in humanist thought. You’ll discover that each child is unique, that his or her cognitive development is an emotional and physiological process as well as an intellectual one. What’s more, you’ll learn that Waldorf teaching is more than just a job, or even a career. It’s a journey of self-exploration and spiritual development. As you reach out to the children in your classes, you’ll rediscover your own creativity and passion for learning. You’ll help children awaken their their innate gifts and fulfill their moral and spiritual potential. Most important, you’ll find that as much as you give them, they’ll give even more to you.

“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.”
- Rudolf Steiner
