I have been a Waldorf teacher for over thirty-five years. I have worked in the UK and in Germany as a class teacher and I have also taught various subjects in the upper school, mainly history, art history and English. For the last 10 years I have taught English as a foreign language in the upper school. I have also worked in teacher education for many years at Emerson College, Plymouth University, Freie Hochschule Stuttgart, the Waldorf Seminar in St. Peterberg, Helicon and Leiden University in the Netherlands and have given lectures and courses in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, South Africa, the Netherlands, United States, India, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan. I have written a number of books and articles about Waldorf pedagogy, quality development and assessment, as well as editing the Educational Tasks and Content of the Steiner Waldorf Curriculum. I was for many years the editor of Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship Publications, the magazine Steiner Education Magazine and the Journal Paideia. I have supported Waldorf schools in many parts of the world. I currently teach English in the Waldorf School in Elmshorn, and I teach foundation studies in anthroposophy at the Waldorfseminar Kiel and am a guest lecturer on the International Masters Programme at the Freie Hochschule Stuttgart. Though I work full time, I create space in my vacations and at weekends to offer some courses.
