July 2016 Opportunities for Practicing Teachers

FITTING OUR TEACHING TO THE CHILDREN (rather than vice versa): Faculty Professional Development with Mary Jo Oresti, M.A., Thursday, July 7, 6:30-8:30, Prairie Hill Waldorf School

What are our core values as educators and how can we renew the culture of education to fit the needs of the children who are present in our classrooms? What are some helpful inner attitudes to cultivate, as Dr. Rudolf Steiner described in his Curative Course? What can we do to provide “First Aid for a Bad Day,” including calming activities to provide support for the restless and active children? If you’re a practicing Waldorf teacher, a homeschool parent/teacher, or a public or private school educator appreciative of the Waldorf approach, this workshop can support your work. Mary Jo Oresti pioneered the Association for Healing Education’s Educational Support Training programs 30 years ago and has been a long time faculty member at the Detroit Waldorf School. She is an international consultant to Waldorf Educational Support programs and trainings.

$20 with registration by June 18; $25 June 19-July 6; $30 at the door
