Waldorf Education was developed at the beginning of the twentieth century by Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian educator, philosopher, scientist, and artist. He based this new art of education on a knowledge of the developing human being called anthroposophy. Anthroposophy offers a philosophy of personal transformation that is of great value to the vocation of teaching. Antioch University New England’s Waldorf Teacher Education Program, based on Steiner’s philosophy, was inaugurated in 1982 to meet the rapidly growing need for Waldorf teachers in North America.
