The primary purpose of The College of Teachers is to work with the meditative content given to teachers by Rudolf Steiner. In order for a teacher or staff member to join The College of Teachers, it is necessary to have been a faculty or staff member for at least one year; to recognize Anthroposophy as the guiding impulse of the school and of one’s own inner work; to commit to work at The Denver Waldorf School for the foreseeable future; to be able to work with one’s colleagues; to attend the weekly Pedagogical Meetings; and to be ready and willing to take on the responsibility for the school. The College meets weekly.
We encourage direct communication throughout the school community. If a parent has a program question, or wishes to discuss a concern in the class, the first person to approach is the Class Teacher, Class Sponsor, or the Subject Teacher. If an initial discussion is unsatisfactory, or if a parent is reluctant to address the teacher directly, the teacher’s mentor may be asked to participate. If the question or concern still remains unresolved, or is of a more serious nature, it may be referred to the Professional Development Committee and College.
