The Nelson Waldorf School has a highly educated and committed faculty, of which several members have returned for 2nd and 3rd eight-year teaching cycles. All class teachers have at least a 4 year university degree, hold BC Independent School Teacherís Certificates, and have participated in approved teacher training in Waldorf and/or public education.
These dedicated teachers come to the school from a variety of backgrounds, cultural experiences and countries, lending a global perspective to their teaching. Academically, their backgrounds are equally diverse, with degrees in Education, Biodynamic farming, Computer Science, Eurythmy, Special Education, Anthroposophy, Art and Music.
The faculty and staff at the Nelson Waldorf School endeavour to work together in a spirit of cooperation and support - amongst themselves and with the parents of the children that they teach. Such collaboration facilitates meeting each childís educational and developmental needs.
Waldorf education is soul work. The teachers see their work as a spiritual calling. Their task, Rudolf Steiner said, was to "accept the children with reverence, educate them with love, and send them forth in freedom."
