Transcript of Waldorf Education
Makes bright for me each day,
The soul with spirit power
Gives strength unto my limbs,
In sunlight shining clear
I revere, Oh God,
The strength of humankind,
Which Thou so graciously
Has planted in my soul,
That I with all my might,
May love to work and learn.
From Thee stream light and strength
To Thee rise love and thanks.

1.A Waldorf teacher must be a person of initiative
2.A Waldorf teacher must be interested in every facet of life
3.A Waldorf teacher must never compromise with untruth
4.A Waldorf teacher must always be fresh, never sour. - Rudolf Steiner: Austrian philosopher
