College of Teachers

The College of Teachers guides instructional theory and practice—the pedagogical life of the school. In broadest terms, the College is responsible for the education of the students and the educational vision of our school.

The College of Teachers shares governing responsibilities with the Board of Trustees and the Administrative Director. Members are faculty and staff who have made a long-term commitment to the principles of Waldorf education, anthroposophy, and the well-being of San Francisco Waldorf School.
