We got in touch with Steiner/Waldorf graduates around the world to ask them two things:
What do you think about who you are today is directly a result of your Steiner/Waldorf education and upbringing at home?
What do you like most and least about your Steiner/Waldorf education?
This is the answer of Isti Baker, a 22 year old Brit from the Michael Hall Steiner School in Sussex, England.
He has been working in the United Kingdom teaching young and old single pitch climbing, kayaking and canoeing, mountain biking, raft building, clay pigeon shooting, archery, high ropes, team problem solving, gorge walking and mini highland games. When he’s not in the woods leading tours and camps, Isti works as a gardener.
In 2015 Isti volunteered at Tuburan Institute, Inc. to help develop our nature site and our games curriculum and share what he can as camp mentor through our Into the Forest Nature camps.
Before he arrived, Isti cycled around 6 countries in Europe – Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. “I was on the road alone for weeks at a time, rain or shine. I would spend weeks alone talking and singing to myself,” he recounts. “When I did meet people I often got offered some food, a shower, and a bed. I made a lot of friends this way.” You can check out Isti’s adventures on his blog, http://worldtrail.co.uk/.
