Her life began in Silesia, where she was born on 22 December 1886 in Breslau, and in the summer of 1919, when she was 33 years old, she took part in the founding of the first Waldorf School in Stuttgart. She dedicated her life to the art of education founded by Rudolf Steiner, and her kindness and great love for the small and growing child had an impressive effect on her pupils and colleagues. This book is a monument to the pedagogical art that Rudolf Steiner's insight into human nature trains in the teacher and became a source of pedagogical inspiration for many teachers and educators of subsequent generations.
