Taproot Teacher Training 2017

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]

As a homeschooler who spends her days with children,
you want to bring them the best learning experiences possible.
But it’s hard!
Sometimes it seems like you spend so much time and effort but still fall short.
And you’re left feeling exhausted, lonely, and drained.

Come to Taproot to be surrounded by people who are encouraging – and return home confident rather than mired in doubt.

Taproot brings together Waldorf homeschoolers from all over North America for workshops in the main lessons and lively arts.

Together, we will sing, create, share stories, learn, hike, and play.

Immerse yourself in the lively arts so that you can then take them back home to your children.

PLEASE JOIN US!

Come enjoy the beautiful Shaw Retreat Center to learn alongside other Waldorf homeschoolers. You’ll leave with new friends!

The magic of Taproot is the warmth and community, support, great conversations and laughter that emerge during this three-day weekend. This training is designed for you as a homeschooling parent or teacher of a small group to help you apply Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy to your unique needs.

The REGISTRATION FEE includes all workshops, dormitory accommodations, meals and snacks for the entire weekend, Thursday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.

The Camp Asbury staff provides a delicious menu of meals using local and/or organic ingredients where possible. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian options will be available. Let us know about food allergies and we will do our best to work with them. For other special dietary needs, you may need to bring food to supplement what is offered.

The Shaw Retreat Center is set in the woods, surrounded by a spacious deck, hiking trails, and an outdoor fire circle. Our Friday night hike will be to a beautiful water falls.

Nursing babies are welcome with a participant caregiver who can step out if the child becomes disruptive. We are unable to provide childcare. Think of Taproot as a learning retreat for Mom (or Dad)![/text_block]
