Faculty Professional Development

Supporting Student Engagement

Mentoring:

Diane brings her enthusiasm and love for the Waldorf Curriculum to bear along with a deepening of child development, daily rhythms, breathing, student/teacher relationships, and techniques to foster greater social bonds within the classroom. She seeks to strengthen teachers to provide a nourishing basis for their work with colleagues, children, youth, and parents through active listening and living Inquiry.

Diane will work with the needs and pedagogical structures within the school’s guidelines, establishing an on-going basis for collaboration and dialogue with the teacher(s) undergoing mentorship. She will provide a written report of the mentorship process, addressing questions, concerns, challenges, and changes undergone by the teacher in question.

Evaluations:

Diane is available to evaluate teachers when needed. She brings warmth, interest, and dialogue to play while seeking to support Educational Pedagogy, the School, and the teacher being evaluated. She will work with the structure of the school’s evaluatory process and provide input to such processes. She will provide a written report of her evaluation at the end of her visit.

The Red Thread

Diane works with Individual teachers to harmonize and deepen connections through teaching subjects which include Big ideas and Core competencies: Weaving Lesson content through the year in academics, social structures, and into the future.
