Experience teaches us that one of the most effective elements in preparing for Waldorf teaching is an active involvement in the life of a school over a significant period of time. Actual encounters with students, colleagues, and parents, along with ongoing guidance and mentoring, are ideal for honing the skills required to become a proficient Waldorf teacher. Such a setting is akin to an extended apprenticeship: the apprentice gradually assumes responsibilities based on the development of essential knowledge and skills.
Our teacher apprenticeship, designed as a one-year program, provides participants with a comprehensive immersion in all aspects of school life and may fulfill certain prerequisites and requirements of a certified Waldorf teacher education program, such as the programs offered in Wilton, NH, each summer by the Center for Anthroposophy in affiliation with the Waldorf Teacher Education Program at Antioch University New England.
