Wellspring Faculty & Staff
The FACULTY consists of teachers in the grades, early childhood, Morning Garden, main lesson
and specialty classes. The faculty is responsible for the school’s pedagogy and sets policy
regarding administrative matters. The faculty chair sets the agenda for the weekly faculty
meetings. Meetings include: school business, artistic activities, the readings and study of the
work of Rudolf Steiner and related materials, individual child study and pedagogical issues.
Parents should contact the faculty chair to bring a concern to the full faculty meeting agenda.
Teachers work out of a foundation of Anthroposophy to invigorate their work to educate children
and support families.
