Waldorf Weekend

Friday, January 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - Saturday, January 26, 2019 @ 5:30 pm

A weekend workshop on the foundations and fundamentals of Waldorf Education from early childhood through high school.

Open to all — and especially relevant for new and prospective Waldorf community members (teachers, parents, grandparents, staff, board members) and lovers of education — our popular Waldorf Weekend workshop is designed to provide an in-depth and experiential survey of the basis and the basics of Waldorf Education.

In addition to exploring the Waldorf curriculum from early childhood through high school, your workshop includes a discussion of Rudolf Steiner’s insights in human development and a look into the anthroposophical underpinnings of the Waldorf impulse. You’ll enjoy hands-on artistic activities such as music, movement, and drawing, and there’ll be plenty of time for questions and answers. Our Waldorf Weekends are a most memorable—and fun!—learning experience.

Instructors

Anna Silber (Anthroposophy/Child Development, Early Childhood and Elementary Curriculum) is Sunbridge Institute’s Director of Education. Anna taught as a class teacher at Green Meadow Waldorf School for five years and served there as a member of the Teacher Development Committee; she also worked with the Green Meadow administrator on curriculum-related projects and offered teacher support. Anna has been a student of anthroposophy for many years and has lectured about Waldorf Education throughout the region. Prior to her work in Waldorf Education, she had a career in commercial real estate finance at J.P. Morgan Investment Management. Anna holds a bachelor’s degree in geography from UC Berkeley and a master’s degree in elementary education from Sunbridge College.

 

Your workshop also includes eurythmy with Laura Radefeld of Green Meadow Waldorf School. High school curriculum instructor TBA
