Cecilia Liss, Academic Director of Waldorf School of Baltimore, spoke on January 7, 2018 at the Baltimore Ethical Society about “Education: A Vehicle for Change.”
There is a growing realization about the importance of instilling a sense of wonder, awe, and appreciation for the natural world, and the ethical values of human beings in childhood, for children’s long-term intellectual curiosity, emotional resiliency, and academic success.
Cecilia Liss delves into what is at the heart of these experientially based, developmentally appropriate methods that makes them ideal for fostering a lifetime of enthusiastic and engaged learning, and moral awareness and responsibility.
Cecilia Liss earned her BA in History and Business from the University of Arizona, and a MEd and Waldorf Teaching Certificate from Antioch New England Graduate School. She worked at the Waldorf School of Baltimore (WSB) as a Class Teacher, Resource Room Teacher, and Admissions Director from 1985-2007. Before returning to WSB in 2015, she was the Manager of Student Services for a Pre-K – Grade 8 homeschool curriculum provider. She managed and trained a team of teachers to support families and students to ensure successful completion of the academic programs. Cecilia’s two daughters graduated from WSB.

The American Ethical Union condemns the passage and signing into law of the Alabama “Human Life Protection Act.” This law, far from honoring human life, profoundly restricts the bodily autonomy of pregnant people; is a bill of rights for rapists and abusers; puts the lives of pregnant people at risk; upends basic moral principles; and continues an assault on reproductive freedom which has been waged for decades.
