Our campus may be closed, but our learning continues…
Since our campus closure last month, the classrooms at the Waldorf School of Princeton have moved to online, virtual learning platforms. Our teachers and staff have risen to the challenge of transitioning the Waldorf curriculum to one that must utilize a delivery system in the realm of digital communication, while maintaining the human and experiential values of Waldorf education.
Our current 6th Grade teacher, Elan Leibner, emphasizes that we are “physically distancing” at this time, but remain, very much, socially connected. “Waldorf Education is precisely ABOUT relationships,” he reminds us. Using Google Classroom, Zoom class meetings, pre-recorded video lessons, audio files, emails, and even the good-old-fashioned phone call, students, their families, and our teachers remain connected to each other during this very abnormal, “new normal” in which we now find ourselves.
Our students are still, very much “Learning in Real Life” while at home, thanks to the support of the teachers and staff members at our remarkable school.
