As we enter Black History Month, our faculty and staff are striving to continue to authentically incorporate important lessons of the beauty, wisdom, oppressive challenges, and gifts of Black Americans with and from our students. We hope to share some of the work, celebrations, and understandings with our community through this newsletter and social media throughout the year.
WSMF strives to ensure our community is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Our DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Committee has focused our efforts this year on supporting our faculty and staff in bringing a stronger DEI awareness, understanding, pedagogical development, and support through bi-weekly meetings, personal development and reflections, and professional training this winter and spring led by Alma Partners. Alma Partners has seasoned DEI trainers, several of whom are also Waldorf teachers and educational leaders with decades of experience in the classroom.
