How To Apply

Thank you for considering the Reimagined In-Service Teacher Education Program for your Waldorf teacher education!

Certificate Program

About the Reimagined In-Service Teacher Education (RITE) Certificate Program:


RITE is an AWSNA prototype program under the umbrella of Great Lakes Waldorf Institute (GLWI). Students will receive their certificate from GLWI.


RITE is a one-time, 30-month training program designed to offer participants robust coursework that honors the realities of managing time, travel, and cost. 


Over the course of this training our instructors and coordinator will glean critical information about what our current and future in-service teachers need to make teacher training a practical reality. 


The RITE program welcomes applicants who are currently teaching at an AWSNA recognized Waldorf school. RITE encourages all qualified individuals who are interested to apply. When making decisions regarding admissions, each candidate's studies, work, and life experience are taken into consideration.
