This talk will be the fourth in our series of five Thursday evenings for people who are interested in becoming Waldorf teachers. James will be exploring the phenomenological approach of the Waldorf grade-school science curriculum. James’ talk will be in-person and accessible on Zoom. The Zoom link can be found here.

He taught at the Kräherwald Waldorf School in Stuttgart, Germany, for five years. Returning to Canada in 1988, he was a class teacher at the Ottawa Waldorf School and then at École Parsifal, also in Ottawa. Currently he is executive director and director of teacher education at RSCC.
