I'm still watching the video but so far I like what I see... I would love to find a school like this for my children.

Incredible rapport between this teacher and his students.  The children are encouraged to think, feel and share. 

I was very pleased to see this teacher hug back when the student wanted to hug his teacher.  I reminded me of the warmth I felt as a child in my classes.  That warmth that has been `policied' away from American schools.

I think this shows something that is greatly important but so often missing.

I love that he hugs and kisses the students. yes, child molestation is horrible. but so is withholding normal human affection. 

and I really like the idea of a teacher staying with a class though the primary years. it's one of the things I really like about Waldorf education.

the empathy and respect in that classroom is wonderful. I think in a lot of public schools here a kid would get teased for being so open about their grief.

I wish my son school was like that, the true meaning to life, is to be happy and help others who wouldnt want that for their kids

it's too dear of a cost, if you ask me. 


and it hasn't stopped molesters, it just creates a barrier between teachers and students. it seems kind of backwards to me, I'd rather learn from someone warm and supportive, someone I feel cares about me, than some cold automoton.
