Faculty and Staff

Waldorf faculty members are a varied and dedicated group of individuals. They have come to the school with valuable life experience in fields outside of teaching, such as art, music, business, theater and sports. Many have taught previously in the public school system or in other private schools. Each of our teachers has participated in formal training at a recognized Waldorf teacher training center in the United States or in Europe.

In all Waldorf schools, a class teacher works with the same group of children for a number of years — ideally from first through eighth grade — monitoring each child’s academic achievement and striving to help each student achieve their full potential. As the teachers’ knowledge of the children deepens through the years, they are in an ideal position to contribute to the healthy intellectual, emotional and social development of each child. Through the challenge of teaching a new curriculum each year, the class teachers bring interest and enthusiasm to their work, and as students observe the teacher personalizing the world of knowledge, they grow in confidence that they, too, can master the many subjects before them.
