An essential workshop for Steiner class teachers.
Delivered online over two sessions for Steiner/Waldorf primary Class Teachers, aspiring teachers and home-school tutors.
In this two-part workshop, casual participants are invited to join our Primary Certificate students in this two-part online series led by master math educator, Jamie York as he illuminates Steiner/Waldorf math and inspires participants to re-imagine how we teach math in the Primary years.
“This has been a truly phenomenal experience! It has been a joy to link Jamie’s workshops with mainstream maths, but taking it further by learning a different approach through the Steiner curriculum, which just makes so much more sense!” – Course Student 2022
“Jamie’s workshops provided us with such wonderful suggestions and ideas for an enlightening maths experience – what a great gift, and his enthusiasm inspired in us a love of learning.” – Course Student 2022
“Our teachers have been working with Jamie’s books for a while, but to have the opportunity to do these workshops with Jamie online was such a privilege. He has reached and inspired so many teachers!” – Course Student 2022
“Jamie York was absolutely fantastic. He really stretched the limits of what I thought mathematics teaching was and opened up a whole new possibility of what it could be – something fun, experiential and exciting. It was so incredibly valuable.” – PTC Student 2021
