Managing Your Year in the Classroom: Tools and Skills for Effective Organization, Planning, and Communication

Sunday, July 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - Tuesday, July 24, 2018 @ 3:30 pm

Professional development for Waldorf teachers and homeschool parents

This highly practical workshop will give you the tools and framework you need to proactively manage your year in the classroom. Using Rudolf Steiner’s lecture “Practical Training in Thought” as a launching point, together we will explore the executive functions and skills that enable us to effectively plan, focus our attention, juggle multiple tasks, and set goals and priorities.

Your workshop will cover methods for:

• Planning your lessons
• Organizing your materials
• Making classroom notes
• Time management
• Effective record-keeping

Some class time will be given to discuss communication with parents and report writing.

You will leave with strategies and tools that can effectively support your success in preparing for the upcoming year.

 

Instructor

Kelly Beekman is fourth grade class teacher at the Brooklyn Waldorf School. Prior to joining the Brooklyn faculty in 2016, she was a member of the faculty for nine years at The Waldorf School of Garden City, where she served as a class teacher, mentor, and lower school chair, and where her ability to plan, organize, and maintain a high level of executive functioning skills, within both her personal class preparation and her classes themselves, were highly recognized. Previously, she served as a Board trustee at The Clover Hill School and as business administrator at The Linden Hill School. A longtime student of anthroposophy, Kelly is a member of the Anthroposophical Society and the First Class of the School of Spiritual Science and the Pedagogical Section. She completed her teacher training at Antioch New England.

Attendees who took a previous Summer Series workshop with Kelly had this to say:

– Kelly was knowledgeable, organized and prepared! She graciously offered to assist us with questions beyond the days of the course.

– Kelly explained all of the information very clearly and passionately. She was well prepared and organized.

– Wonderful instructor! Kelly really knew the subject inside and out, had fantastic ideas, and was very approachable and amicable.

– I don’t think anyone could have been as thorough and detailed as Kelly. She’s inspiring!

Your workshop also includes movement with Will Crane.
