Adolescence can be a trying time for both children and their parents, especially in the high speed culture that we find ourselves in today. Presenter Elizabeth Gantner will speak from a Waldorf-inspired philosophy about what children are going through, and how we can help them navigate through this difficult time in their journey through life. Adults only. Open to the community. Elizabeth Gantner comes to us from Four Winds Waldorf in Warrenville, IL, where she is a 22-year veteran of Waldorf education and current 7th/8th Grade teacher.
