How to Meet the Changing Needs of Children through 12 Senses
January 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-6
How to meet the changing needs of children in working with Steiner’s 12 senses.
We will look at how we can continue to meet the children of today. Anyone who is a parent or a teacher of children from ages 0-21 will benefit from this talk. Participants will gain an understanding of how the increase of today’s attention, speech, auditory processing, and spectrum “disorders” link back to our senses. They will also leave with tools they can implement both at home and at school to support our children.
Childcare and snacks will be provided. Please RSVP if you will need childcare. It will be $5/child
Hannah Jackson received her undergraduate degree in Special Education at Appalachian State University and upon graduating taught adjudicated youth with learning disabilities in a self-contained classroom. Later, she taught 3r d and 4t h graders who had developmental and learning disabilities.
She received her Master’s in Elementary Education with a certification in Waldorf Education in 2000 from Antioch New England Graduate School. While working toward her Masters, Hannah was an assistant in a 3r d grade Waldorf Classroom for a year, and upon graduating, she taught first grade in a public school. After a year of being an elementary public school teacher, Hannah accepted a position as a 3r d grade teacher at the Austin Waldorf School where she taught for three years. During that time, she completed a three-year Waldorf Remedial Course and became certified as a Waldorf Remedial Educator. Her husband was offered a job as the Editor of Rock and Ice magazine in Carbondale, Colorado, so they decided to move there, whereupon Hannah became the Educational Support Therapist at the Waldorf School on the Roaring Fork, where she worked for 10 years. Currently Hannah and her family live on Maui and Hannah is the Educational Support Therapist at the Haleakala Waldorf School.
