The Essence of Waldorf
These talks are for people who would like to learn more about Christopherus’ unique way of meeting the needs of homeschoolers whilst remaining true to Waldorf pedagogy.

Respected for its integrity, liveliness and unique way of bringing Waldorf education to homeschoolers, Christopherus Homeschool Resources arises out of Donna Simmons 25+ years of rich experience as a Waldorf teacher (kindergarten through high school), parent educator, outdoor Waldorf educator and homeschooling mom.
