FIRST GRADE TEACHER:

Woodland Charter School, in beautiful Murphy, Oregon, is seeking a dynamic first grade teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. We seek a Waldorf-trained teacher for a position in a public Waldorf-methods 1st through 8th grade charter school. Our school is committed to the American Waldorf curriculum as outlined by AWSNA, and to following the principles of Waldorf education as closely as possible under the law.

We offer a competitive public school teacher’s salary with step increases, and a benefits package that includes paid sick leave, medical, dental and vision coverage, and a pension plan. Paid professional development opportunities are offered.

Our school community will welcome you to wonderful southern Oregon, where the living is affordable and the land is beautiful and varied, with many biodynamic farms.

The successful candidate must have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in an education-related field, and a Waldorf certificate. Additionally, Oregon licensure is required. Oregon has reciprocity with most other states, if you are licensed elsewhere. We will assist in licensing new teachers.

Our rural school, which opened in October 2012 with 60 students, expects an enrollment of 170 students in September 2016 in grades 1- 8. Our curriculum includes the following special subjects: Spanish Language, Music (includes choral singing and string instruments), Handwork, Woodworking, Block Eurythmy, and Games/Movement.

The Spanish Language position is a 3/4 time position with a stipend for medical expenses and a stipend for professional development. While we prefer a native speaker, we will accept applicants who have conversational fluency. The applicant must have a World Languages or Spanish Language concentration with a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. Oregon licensure is required, and we will assist those who need to seek reciprocity. Waldorf Teacher Training in World Languages or Spanish is recommended. 

Spanish Language is taught to all students, grades 1-8, two days per week throughout the school year. The teacher attends the Faculty Council meeting weekly and is expected to participate on a Council Committee after the first year of teaching at the school.
