Art of Teaching Waldorf Education

Golden Valley Charter Schools’ new Art of Teaching program is focused on putting the theory behind Waldorf Education into practice. Our courses include focus on forming classes, classroom management, developing the social and emotional needs of students, and working with parents. Seasoned professionals from the greater Sacramento region have collaborated to bring you their wealth of experience in the arts and sciences so you can be successful in any public or independent school environment. With a sense of wonder and purpose, come join us this June to launch your summer of preparation while we dance, sing, move, experiment, debate, and laugh.
