Faculty and Teaching Staff

The Peace Valley Faculty serves the school in many ways and is dedicated to bringing the children a living experience of Waldorf education. The faculty meets every Thursday after school as sections and then together for common study, broadening their understanding of current educational challenges and practices, and for developing a greater perception of children and their needs.

Peace Valley faculty members are also active in the administrative and committee life of the school. Faculty committees and pedagogical sections meet and include: Early Childhood, Lower School, Middle School and Subject class sections, Educational Support Circle, Social Health Group, Community, Festivals, Parent Enrichment, Hiring, Personnel, and Teacher Support.
