The Waldorf teacher
Growing with the children
Teaching in a Steiner-Waldorf school is a calling and not just a job. Waldorf education asks a lot of its teachers, but it gives a great deal in return. Teachers are urged to engage in the educational process in the same three-dimensional manner as the children actively, emotionally, and thoughtfully. They are asked to be fully present in the classroom and in their preparation. In addition, Waldorf teachers survey the expanse of human history with children.
An evolutionary career
Good teachers invariably are avid learners. Searching for new insights and new approaches, Waldorf teachers continue to evolve throughout their teaching careers. As class teachers move from grade to grade with their students teaching a new curriculum each year, they too receive an education, one that brings them a rich understanding of the natural world through subjects like astronomy, meteorology, botany, geology, and zoology.
Guidance with challenges
Although enabling children to succeed in school is of great importance, helping them when difficulties arise can be life changing. Challenging situations are important educational opportunities, not just for children, but for their teachers, as well. When these difficulties are resolved, when challenging situations are transformed, epiphanies occur and the child/teacher relationship deepens dramatically.
