Alliance Summer 2022 Professional Development
The Alliance for Public Waldorf Education is offering Summer Professional Development designed for the Public Waldorf Community

Week 1: July 11th-15th Theory and Practice

Week One of Professional Development offers a combination of theory and practice for educators working out of the Core Principles of Public Waldorf Education.  Designed for all members of the Public Waldorf community, participants can choose from a variety of offerings, including introductory/orientation sessions for those new to Public Waldorf education (these sessions are prerequisites for all grades teachers new to Public Waldorf who wish to enroll in Week #2). In addition to the orientation sessions, teachers have the opportunity to participate in courses in child development, special education, therapeutic education, DEI, leadership, and mindfulness.  Artistic courses are designed to help develop the teacher’s inner life.  Participants can sign up for the entire week or may select individual courses that meet their professional/inner development needs.  

Week 2: July 18th-22nd Early Childhood through 8th Grade

Week two is designed for teachers in schools working out of the core principles of Public Waldorf Education. The schedule reflects a professional development experience to support and prepare teachers for entering the classroom.  Instructors have all been involved with schools working out of the core principles and look forward to forming cohorts specific to each grade/area in the morning course.  The courses in math, literacy, and the arts will form as cohorts combining two grades.  Please expect to participate in all the courses for your grade/area, as the instructors are working together to build up a complete picture.  Our hope is that new friendships will form, new insights and practical skills will be gained and that participants will leave feeling refreshed and enthusiastic to begin teaching their classes.
