Reimagined Inservice Teacher Education Program

The Reimagined Inservice Teacher Education (RITE) program is a prototype teacher training program for in-service grades 1-8 teachers at Waldorf schools. The program, sponsored jointly by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America and Great Lakes Waldorf Institute, is designed to support in-service teachers who have not yet had the opportunity to begin teacher training.


Prototype Program

  • Robust 500-hour training program that fits the practical needs of working teachers.

  • Low residency program over 24 to 30 months with two 2-week in-person intensives. 

  • Enrollment of teachers from schools in close geographic proximity to each other. In this way we can offer in-person classes in the evenings or weekends throughout the school year. 

  • Optimized synchronous and asynchronous learning so that participants are able to delve deeply into every profound and practical aspect of Waldorf grades education. 

  • Opportunity for participants to build lasting relationships and camaraderie with their peers.
