I'm glad to know that intrinsically, I'm on the right path. I've adopted aspects and was inspired to utilize others in the way I teach not having known that these methods were implemented in the Waldorf Method Schools. I think it's a shame some urban students today don't have the creative aspect of learning incorporated into their daily learning lives. I feel lucky to have attended a suburban school. I will, however, provide opportunities for my students to learn the material in an unconventional way which in my opinion is more beneficial, lasting and fun.

This is one of the best representations of Waldorf Education and the John Morse program I have seen to date. Way to go, Malaika and crew!
