Having 28 daughters. Waldorf Education in India

March 2018

An interview with Manorama Kamineni, Sloka Waldorf School Hyderabad.

Manorama, please introduce yourself!

I am basically a science post graduate and teach geography in upper grades. I am very interested in researching the significance of Waldorf education for India. I have been a teacher all my life and I work at Sloka Waldorf School in Hyderabad. I have an MSc in nutrition and a further MEd in Waldorf education from Norway. I like working with young students from 12 years old upwards. Thankfully, Waldorf education makes it possible for me to teach various subjects. I am also fond of telling stories, such as legends and biographies. The possibility of working with art and science for teaching is enjoyable.

My deep quest to know more about Waldorf education took me on a journey to Oslo to study on their masters program. I have become a Waldorf teacher for the freedom and the opportunity it offers to explore both the self and children in society.

Here at Sloka Waldorf School in Hyderabad we are trying to bring about necessary changes for the Waldorf movement, trying not to dilute the essence while catering to the government rules.
