We are  seeking a dynamic first grade teacher for the 2014-2015 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 school. We offer a competitive public school teacher’s salary with step increases, a 12 month schedule, and a benefits package that includes paid sick leave, medical and dental coverage, and a pension plan.

Our school community will welcome you to wonderful southern Oregon, where the living is affordable and the land is beautiful and varied. We are one hour from: Crater Lake, the Stout Grove (giant redwoods) , the Oregon Coast, and the Pacific Crest Trail, with many accessible high peaks. Our amazing local river systems offer rafting, kayaking, and swimming for water enthusiasts. Bio-dynamic and organic farms abound in this temperate zone, and we have many farmers in our 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 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. Effective classroom management, combined with a penetrating insight into the pedagogy of Waldorf education, are key components that we seek in a first grade teacher.
