TheTaproot Teacher Training for Waldorf Homeschoolers takes place every August in Ohio! Over a lovely, long weekend in the summertime, homeschooling parents from all over North America come together to sing, create, learn, hike and play.

The team of presenters includes Jean Miller, Barbara Dewey, and Alison Manzer, along with other teachers experienced in working with the Waldorf approach and homeschoolers including Royse Crall, Sheila Petruccelli, Jodie Mesler, and Alisha Trammell. Participants are always amazed to be able to work in small groups and so closely with such experienced educators.
We offer this training to suit the unique situation of homeschooling parents and teachers of small groups. We celebrate the advantages of working in a home, while applying Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy to the needs of the homeschooling family. We would love for you to join us in August 2017!
I cannot think of another retreat, conference or continuing education event that I have been to that even comes close to the amazing experience I had at Taproot. It was LIFE CHANGING. I felt at home with all of the people there and with the environment. I came home recharged and ready to go."
