The College of Teachers is made up of full-time Faculty members who have been employed at Cedar Springs Waldorf School for at least one year. The College meets once a week when school is in session to consider issues related to the educational (pedagogical) component of the school. Responsibilities of the College include the integrity of the Faculty and the curriculum and overall programs, policies and procedures of the school. All curricular changes must be approved by the College. In addition, the College consciously holds the spiritual welfare, vision and long-term planning for the school as a guiding principle.
College of Teachers Mission Statement
The Cedar Springs Waldorf School College of Teachers agree to work out of Anthroposophy (the philosophical ideals set forth by the founder of Waldorf education, Rudolf Steiner), to cherish and protect the childhood of our students, to acknowledge the spiritual life of the human being, to involve parents in their child’s education and to strive for open communication. We work out of Anthroposophy through the study of Steiner’s work, our attendance of anthroposophical conferences and the pursuit of meditative practices.
