Being an Ambleside Teacher
An Ambleside teacher is passionate about nourishing and nurturing the lives of students. The teacher shares in a vision for who each student is becoming and with this in mind works diligently to bring out the best in each student, as well as provides support in areas of weakness.
An Ambleside teacher develops and grows as a learner. A myriad of studies are before him: composers and artists, handwork and writing, history and literature, observing and experimenting in science, and connecting in mathematics. The teacher faces these subjects with attention and delight. The truths unfold, and he grows in wisdom and skill.
In the daily work, one approaches learning through a lens of a method, not a hard fast system. The method takes on a rhythm, a way of approaching the learning. The work of Spirit and mind interact to unfold the mysteries of knowledge to those who attend.
An Ambleside teacher leads her students through the ups and downs of everyday life, working together for a common end, growth. “We learn in order to grow.”
