Meet The Spring River College of Teachers and Faculty
Our teachers are the heart of Spring River, and have been chosen by the College of Teachers and the Spring River Committee because they are proven educators with a devotion to an arts-infused, whole-child curriculum that honors the natural world and the developmental phases of childhood.
Some of our teachers are also homeschooling their own children, or have done so in the past, and can prove to be a helpful resource for families new to homeschooling. Many of our teachers have backgrounds in public school education and have chosen a new path with a focus on Waldorf Education and/or certification. If you are interesting in becoming a teacher or joining the staff of Spring River, please apply through our Employment Opportunities page.
"Where is the book in which the teacher can read about what teaching is? The children themselves are this book. We should not learn to teach out of any book other than the one lying open before us and consisting of the children themselves."
- Rudolf Steiner, founder of Waldorf Education
