MINNESOTA WALDORF SCHOOL
First Grade Class Teacher
The Minnesota Waldorf School is currently accepting applications for a first grade class teacher for the 2017-18 school year. Application deadline is February 17th, 2017.
Minnesota Waldorf School is a PreK – 8th grade independent school. Our beautiful campus is nestled on eight acres of woods and green space with gardens, chickens, and a fully equipped playground. Near the intersection of Rice Street and County Road B, just north of Saint Paul, we are easily accessible from all parts of the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
The Twin Cities metro area includes a vibrant music and theater scene with world class venues including the St Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, the Guthrie Theater, the Ordway, the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater, and many high quality smaller theaters. There are many parks, lakes, and hiking trails throughout the metro area, and numerous greenways and well-marked bike lanes make bicycle commuting very accessible. The Twin Cities boast multiple food co-ops, alternative health practitioners, and resources for green living. Lake Superior with its breath taking, pristine North Shore is 2 hours north, and the Boundary Waters Canoe area is also only a few hours drive away.
Our sister school, City of Lakes Waldorf School, is 20 minutes away in the heart of Minneapolis. 40 minutes to the east of our campus are two anthroposophical farms and life sharing communities – Community Homestead, and Buttermilk Falls CSA and Folk School. Camphill Minnesota is an hour northwest of the Twin Cities. Anthroposophical activities in the area include biography classes, artistic workshops, festivals, and events.
Ideal candidates will hold a Waldorf Teaching Certificate or a Masters Degree in Waldorf Education. We seek a candidate who has teaching experience and a dedication to Waldorf education. This candidate will have a deep love for working with children, effective teaching skills that nurture and help develop the capacities in children, and the ability and desire to be a part of a dynamic and committed faculty.
Salary and Benefits:
