River Oak Charter School, guided by the core principles of public Waldorf education, and a member of the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education, seeks an experienced, professional first grade teacher to join our faculty for the fall of 2017. We are looking for just the right person to take our 24 creative, enthusiastic young children from first through eighth grade. This is a lovely group of children with a very supportive parent body.

River Oak is situated in the town of Ukiah, CA, centrally located in the gorgeous, rural county of Mendocino - home to a diverse, progressive, artistic community. The town is nestled in a valley traversed by the Russian River and flanked by the western hills of the Mayacamas Mountains. We are near the rugged Pacific coast, 2 hours north of San Francisco, and 3 hours from the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Founded in 1999, River Oak serves 240 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. We have a faculty of excellent teachers who are committed to Waldorf pedagogy. Each possesses a CA multiple subject teaching credential, and a Waldorf teaching certificate. They are supported by an active Parent Council and a dedicated Charter Council (Board of Trustees). The curriculum includes Spanish, folk dance, painting, music (recorder, strings, band, singing), handwork, eurythmy, woodwork, gardening, P.E., and community service. In middle school, both math and science are supported by specialists, and students are tracked in a leveled math program.

CA multiple subject teaching credential (or eligibility for one), Waldorf teaching certificate highly desirable. Successful classroom experience teaching in a Waldorf school or Steiner inspired public school highly desired.

Benefits:
Competitive salary and benefits that include health and dental insurance, STRS retirement plan, BTSA mentoring, financial support for professional development, and pupil enrollment preference for teacher's children.
