Faculty: Ben Linstrom
Ben comes to the Detroit Waldorf School from Eugene, OR, where he received his Waldorf teaching certification from the Waldorf Teacher Institute of Eugene. At the Eugene Waldorf School he studied, tutored, mentored and gave music instruction. We received glowing recommendations from his teachers who describe him as well educated with a strong moral and ethical character and a strong intellect and heart. We experienced his enthusiasm, warmth and lovely presence with the children during his visit to our school in the spring of 2015.
