Hello all,
Just thought I'd introduce myself here. I am mum to a 3 and a bit year old. We live in ******* Scotland and attend the parent and child group at the ******* Steiner School. I am Canadian, my husband is American and our daughter was born here.
My daughter may be starting kindergarten in August. We actually have our interview with the kinde teacher tomorrow and I am soooo nervous, I don't know why!

We came to Waldorf education through my cousin that attended a school in California. After spending many months researching the whole thing we decided it was right for us. Much of the philosophy was instinctually part of how we raise our daughter already. We have loved the parent and toddler group but I am on the fence at the moment over how far we will take my daughter through the school.
The ******* school is a very small and young school which needs some work but my daughter adores going there and when I think of mainstream education, I get very worried!

Anyways, we have lots to think about.

Please don't send any haggas, but white pudding would be fine!

I am sorry I didn't realize I had never introduced myself. We have been homeschooling for about 7 years now - I have two boys, one in 6th grade and another in 1st grade. We are from Texas, but recently moved to the Great Plains.

Waldorf Ed has been a huge boon to our family since we found it through the old Natural Baby catalog. Since I have boys, I was initially afraid that the fairy stuff would not appear, but then I found that magic and wonder appeal to all kids. Even as my eldest is entering middle school, I can see how he still takes in the wonder of our world differently from his traditionally-educated peers.

I am so lucky to have been able to learn from some really great Waldorf teachers and other homeschoolers over the years...and in the same way I am incredibly grateful for this forum - one of the few places where Waldorf homeschoolers and school families meet up to discuss what Waldorf is about and how it can look in our homes.

Thanks for all of your marvelous insights!

Lucie

i know that i wont be starting a family (seriously dating/married/ then having kidsO until i gain at least one mark ryden orginal, a few rare aleister crowley first editions and a couple of my dream cars


The two Waldorf schools in Seattle:
www.brightwaterschool.org
www.seattlewaldorf.org

Both try to have a mixed a faculty.

Supra, you will never make a lot of money as a Waldorf teacher. You might want to check out Waldorf charter schools. You will make more money at a public school than at a private school.

i know i wont make alot, just enough to make a living and support my loves

but to be totally honest if i am truly happy it really wouldnt matter that much to me, i mean ive been at jobs that i hated mostly due to the money but at lplaces i lovd i didnt realy care about that.

with what i want to buy i mean i can always save

thank yoyu and cheers
