Waldorf Teacher Education, Eugene, Oregon (WTEE), is a center for the study of Anthroposophy and for the preparation of Waldorf educators, K-8. WTEE offers a two year immersion style program, September to June, four times a week, and an individualized third year option, which provides a firm pedagogical foundation upon which new teachers may build their future work as educators. Artistic studies, including the visual arts, eurythmy, choir, recorder, speech, drama, form drawing, handwork and woodwork, comprise half of the weekly schedule along with four seminars per week. Education year offers 7 weeks of practicum and 125 hours of classroom volunteer time. The immersion nature of WTEE allows for continual deepening of subjects and self-development, and a strong social bonding with fellow students and teachers. WTEE is located in the midst of the Eugene Waldorf School campus, a K - 8 Waldorf school. Our students participate in the life of the school as an integral part of their educational experience.
We will begin "in person" fall 2021 on September 10th, Friday. We are currently receiving applications for enrollment and appreciate early enrollment when possible. If we are still operating within restrictions of the covid situation, enrollment in the Foundation year is limited to 15 students. Some activities may be restricted.
We wish to contribute to the renewal of cultural life and education by working out of a broad world view which recognizes the whole human being's capacities and potential.
More than ever, the world needs self-aware people with a strong sense of purpose, concern for others and the capacity to be in service to humanity. WTEE invites students from all nations, all ethnic and racial backgrounds, all spiritual paths and all personal orientations, who wish to study anthroposophy and/or to prepare to become a Waldorf teacher, to join us in our work and study.
Become a Waldorf Early Childhood or Grades educator in two to three years of study and practice.
