Summer Teacher Training in Cuernavaca, Mexico


As every summer, our teachers attended for 3 weeks to the Waldorf Teacher Training in the Anthroposophical Development Center in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. This enriching experience, in addition to go deep into the pedagogical principles that we apply daily in our work, serves also to share experiences with teachers coming from very different places and countries. This training is received with enthusiasm and reverence, as it helps our educational community and all of San Marcos La Laguna continue raising awareness of intercultural education for freedom.

The activities cover areas as diverse as methodology courses, anthroposophy, handicraft workshops, working with mud, music or Waldorf dolls. Also, illustrious people share their  pedagogical experience in the form of lectures and conferences. This year we delved into such exciting topics as “The 7 virtues of the Teacher” or “Life, death and reincarnation.”

After three weeks of intense work, we return to the daily rhythm in Escuela Caracol, where we can share with our community our coexistence in Cuernavaca. In the last three months of the school year there is still plenty of time to join our groups and to offer everything  we learned socially, culturally and personally.
