JOIN US ON A JOURNEY OF EXPLORATION!
Great Lakes Waldorf Institute’s 2019 -20 courses, weekend retreats and adult enrichment events are designed to inspire, renew and challenge you. Courses may be audited for professional development and continuing education opportunities or taken to earn a Waldorf Teaching Certificate or a Master’s of Arts degree in Education from Mount Mary University with a Waldorf Teaching Certificate. Great Lakes Waldorf Institute has the experience and expertise to meet your educational goals.
A good teacher must know the rules; a good pupil, the exceptions. Martin H. Fischer
As insightful as the quote above maybe, the vision of a room full of students hunting for the exception might cause you to think twice about teaching as a career.
Teacher preparation at Great Lakes Waldorf Institute is thoughtfully designed to challenge your preconceived notions about yourself – socially, intellectually, physically, and artistically – helping you to develop and strengthen your capacities in a supportive social and collegial environment. Our curriculum and independent classroom study with experienced teachers will assist in the development of your contemplative capacities; deepen your understanding of the whole human being as it unfolds through the critical phases of childhood; help you explore and identify pedagogical approaches and skills that will enhance your teaching; and expand your ability to work with colleagues and parents.
All courses can be audited at a reduced rate for professional development or continuing education. For further information, please contact Sandra at 414.299.3820 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
