Our Students || Susan Muller
Susan Mueller graduated as a secondary teacher and began teaching in the state system in 2002, but left about 2 years later to travel.
“I came back at the beginning of last year (2008) and went into Steiner” says Susan explaining that she wanted to teach, but not in the state system. Her friend at Michael Park Rudolf Steiner School in Auckland suggested she apply for an English teaching position in the upper school there and she hasn’t looked back. She went straight into the in-service course at Taruna, which she says has ‘re-centred’ her.
Susan says that her experience as a student at Taruna was ‘a real exchange’ where she felt acknowledged as a professional and as a human being. “It was a reciprocal interchange of thoughts and ideas,” through which, she says, she has grown and developed as a person as well as, as a teacher. “I think the whole benefit of the Taruna courses is that you become more balanced and in tune with yourself.”
