How to Become a Waldorf Teacher

Save

A Waldorf teacher strives to shape the hearts and minds of students. The need to incorporate art and beauty into learning is a necessity at Waldorf schools. Being a Waldorf teacher requires that you complete training at a specialized center. You don't need a college degree before you begin training, but you may earn one, if you so choose, by the time you complete the training. You will need to complete the necessary coursework from the center, which is usually located on a college campus.

Things You'll Need

  • Waldorf teaching certificate
  • Portfolio
  • Start Waldorf training at a recognized Waldorf teacher training center. Choose whether to attend full time or part time.

  • Complete the required course work and receive a Waldorf teaching certificate.

  • Gather pictures, essays, student projects and examples of work you did during teacher training.

  • Assemble an organized portfolio with a table of contents. State your Waldorf teaching philosopy first. Then include tabbed sections for such things as: essays on theories, student work, teaching projects, communication home, and continuing education.

  • Search for Waldorf schools looking to fill vacancies. Whywaldorfworks.org gives a list of Waldorf schools located in the United States. Also look into schools that don't have vacancies posted, because positions can open anytime and you will want the schools to have your resume on hand.

Tips & Warnings

  • Apply for financial aid if you feel you may qualify.
  • Understand that there may not be any openings available as soon as you complete the training.
