Job Description
Woodland Charter School, in beautiful Murphy, Oregon, is seeking a dynamic first grade teacher for the 2015-2016 school year. We seek an experienced Waldorf teacher to join our harmonious faculty of Waldorf-trained main lesson teachers (and developing special subjects teachers) in a public Waldorf-methods 1st through 8th grade charter school. 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.

Our amazing local river systems offer rafting, kayaking, and swimming for water enthusiasts. Biodynamic and organic farms abound in this temperate zone, and we have many farmers in our school community.

The successful candidate must have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in an education-related field and a Waldorf certificate. Additionally, Oregon licensure and a Master’s degree in education will ensure a higher salary. Excellent interpersonal skills and a desire for warm collegiality with educational peers- and equally warm relationships with families and children- are vital characteristics that will ensure a good fit with our school community.
