First Grade

First Grade Long-term Class Teacher

Mar 14 2017 | Windsong School | Spokane, Washington

Windsong School is seeking a first grade class teacher to join our growing grades program.

Windsong is a pioneering school entering its 7th year, offering a robust parent-child program, a solid Early Childhood Program which includes two nursery classes and three mixed-age kindergartens, and a Grades Program that includes grades 1-6 as well as six speciality subjects.

Our school is located above the scenic Spokane River on the historic Fort George Wright campus, woven through with antique walkways, quiet tree-lined streets, and dignified historic officers’ quarters. We enjoy trail access to the Spokane River and abundant nature opportunities, along with well-established cultural exchanges with the visiting Japanese university students whose extension program neighbors our school and who lend immediate relevance to our Japanese language program.

Pioneering schools offer teachers many unique benefits and opportunities for growth. Those who enjoy “trail blazing,” and are resourceful, driven, flexible, responsible, and pragmatic will enjoy the independence and creative freedom available at a school in its formation stage.

This incoming grades teacher can expect a class of about 16-20 students. They will join a fun-loving, hardworking, and sincere faculty, be supported by a friendly and efficient administrative team, and lead a passionate and engaged parent body. This class will be filled with children who are eager to begin down their path of academic learning.

Requirements: Ideal candidates are experienced, Waldorf-trained or enrolled in a training program, with a Bachelor’s degree and a commitment to working out of Anthroposophy. Only candidates whose intention is to carry this class through the 8th grade will be considered.

Salary and Benefits: Our salary is commensurate with nearby Waldorf schools. Benefits include full tuition remission for lead teachers.

To apply, please send a letter of interest specifically addressing why you are interested in teaching at a pioneering school, a professional resume, contact information for three professional references, and a brief biography.
