Our student body is a diverse group of individuals, representing a great variety of skills, interests, educational and cultural backgrounds, and life goals. The goal which unites them all
is that of fulfilling their potential to become a fully self-realized person who inspires and facilitates the same in the children who will eventually be in their charge.
"As a public school teacher for 13 years, I'd about lost hope for education in this country. My WISC training has opened up a whole new world of deeply meaningful education; one that
respects how children learn and brings back the awe and wonder of childhood. It has reinvigorated my own love of learning, and restored my sense of purpose and love for this work."
"I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to learn from all of these brilliant teachers. I had no idea how great a gift it would be to get to delve into what goes on the behind the scenes
of a Waldorf classroom. I have been teaching children and adults for my entire life, and until now I really thought I knew what I was doing. The program is eye-opening and truly life-changing, I only wish I had
found this path sooner."
"WISC imparts an unparalleled joyful and loving learning landscape that has rekindled, nurtured and amplified my spiritual and intellectual growth."
"As an individual who seeks constant spiritual and emotional growth as well as environments that promote life-long learning, W.I.S.C. has been wonderful for me. It has provided a place
for me to be able to nurture these aspects. Even as a first year student, I have been able to explore areas of learning that I never imagined. I have grown immensely in many ways that do not only impact me,
but also my family, my community, and hopefully one day soon, I will be able to influence the world one student at a time."

"I feel so blessed to be part of the WISC teacher training community. It's as if I've been given a second chance in life to go back to school, to breathe in the true essence of “WHO I AM”."
"I had no idea when I first started the training I would dig so deep into knowing myself. The support I have received from administration and camaraderie with fellow students makes
the journey compelling. The music/singing, arts & crafts, and building classroom skills is exceptional. I feel so fortunate to have found all of this in Waldorf Teacher Training"
"As a relatively new student, I already feel like I have been given a solid platform to stand on as I follow my dream of becoming a teacher. I am so grateful to spend every Saturday with
like-minded people who are quickly becoming my closest friends and colleagues."
"I am so grateful for the series of life events that led me to WISC. Although I had little understanding of what I was getting into when I joined, I quickly saw that I had stumbled
upon a gem and soon felt that my continued participation was absolutely essential. It is difficult for me to put into words, what WISC has meant for me. After several months in the program, I am more passionate
about Waldorf Education than ever. I look forward to giving back to the world my gifts that have been revealed through the caring dedication of WISC instructors and administrators."

"There are so many more layers to life than I thought before discovering WISC. I grow so much each time one gets revealed. And the reward of knowing that this growth will be a gift to others."
Beatriz Baena, 2nd year student
"Through WISC I have peered into many corners of learning and realized a life-long reflection."
"From day one, WISC has never ceased to amaze and surprise me. I look forward to my Saturdays at WISC as what I learn there is life transforming to me. It gives me deep insight,
not only into teaching from 'wholeness', but also into understanding myself. WISC stands for growth, change, compassion and friendship in my life. Thank you WISC."
"WISC feeds my soul
The classes open the mind
My classmates are like-minded, similarly creative and peaceful-minded persons.
Expression in movement, music, words, and
raw material, wood and painting.
Instruction in concepts and how to appropriately teach to age and grade level
Learning Waldorf curriculum and opening and strengthening the imagination and creativity
of the children we will teach.
Waldorf draws, with a magnetism, great and spirited souls to teach new ones."
"WISC is more than just a teacher training program, it is a beautiful journey we take in the company of the of the best humans around. Teaching is a calling and WISC provides the
foundations and framework for us to build a career and a life.."
