Subject:A Bit Worried...
Time:08:18 pm
Hello all,
I am currently an undergraduate History major, who will most likely be going on next year to get my masters in education with a concentration in Waldorf education. I have one thing that is making me a bit apprehensive about the idea of being a Waldorf teacher and that is Main Lesson Blocks.

My general fear is that while I excel in history and english and other such humanities subjects (my college degrees are in history and women's studies), I struggled myself through most of my schooling in math and science. While I am sure I am capable of teaching basic math, as my students get older I fear I would not be able to help them.

I know that not everyone is good at everything, so this much have posed a paradox for many teachers (or teacher wannabe's like me!), does anyone have any advice on easing that fear?

Thank You!!

At my school they had specialist teach math starting in sixth grade. Science was done by the teachers all the way through though. My teacher was not super strong in science, but that didn't matter too much. The curriculum dictates the subject matter and students are supposed to be learning from their own observations. You should be able to teach a science block out of a well written main lesson book.

Good luck.
