Teacher Training

Would you like to take a deep dive into Waldorf education or learn more about our teaching methods and underlying philosophies? Are you interested in the future of Waldorf education? 

Our approach is to put Anthroposophy and Waldorf education in open dialogue with the best thinking of our wider culture, whether Queer Theory and Feminism or postmodern spirituality and Ableism. In our experience, such a dialogical approach is essential in developing, in ourselves and our students, more nuanced and sensitive spiritual capacities, ones that are necessary to participate creatively in the world today. We help teachers better meet the young people they teach, the colleagues they work with, the communities they serve, and the times they live in. The program is developed by Sacramento Waldorf School faculty members Isabelle Tabacot and Andrew Sullivan.
