Why take Sebastopol Art of Teaching courses?

Waldorf education is based on a profound understanding of human development. Teacher-designed lessons address the needs of the individual student and the class as a whole. 

As the first public Waldorf School in the nation, Sebastopol Charter School is committed to supporting colleagues in public and private Waldorf Schools who are striving to transform education into an art that educates the whole child—the head, hands, and heart.  

Our courses and dates for the summer of 2019 are...
