Rising 7th Grade (and 8th the year after)
Mar 20 2017 | East Bay Waldorf | El Sobrante
Join us for 7th and 8th Grade!
Feb 15 2017 | East Bay Waldorf School | El Sobrante
The East Bay Waldorf School is looking for an experienced class teacher to lead a thoughtful and enthusiastic class into their last two years of Middle School. These seventeen students are respectful, energetic, warm and good natured. They have had the same experienced teacher since the first grade (who is retiring). They are well formed and eager to engage with an individual who is ready to enter into the rigor and vivre of Middle School. In particular, these students love storytelling and enjoy writing dynamic historical fiction. They have cultivated a keen sense for the arts, particularly drawing and painting.
We are looking for someone who is positive, creative, has strong organizational skills, and communicates well with colleagues, administration, and parents. We value excellent teaching and classroom management skills, artistic integrity, and a deep understanding of child development.
Ideal candidates have completed their full training and a Bachelor’s degree, have experience teaching, and are committed to collaborative work with colleagues and self development. Our full time base salary is $50,000 with increments for teaching experience and health, dental, tuition remission, mentoring and financial support for professional development
East Bay Waldorf School is an independent AWSNA- and WECAN-accredited school, located in El Sobrante, California in the beautiful, thriving East Bay hills – just minutes from Berkeley and San Francisco. Our site combines the best of two worlds: an idyllic natural setting with open fields and gardens, adjacent to regional parks and wild lands, and within thirty minutes of the major cultural and urban centers of the San Francisco Bay.
Founded in 1980, we offer a complete Preschool-8th Grade Waldorf education, as well as thriving Parent-Child and Parent Education programs. For the 2016-2017 school year EBWS will serve over 180 students, from infancy through Grade 8. We have excellent teachers, an active parent body, a strong board and serve as the campus for the Bay Area Center for Waldorf Teacher Training (BACWTT).
Through strong collegial collaboration, grounded in a solid commitment to anthroposophy, the faculty work closely together to ensure and support our thriving school. Our teachers are committed to lifelong learning and developing themselves both personally and professionally. Knowing how to build and maintain strong relationships with students, parents and colleagues is essential. We offer a competitive benefits package to full time faculty, with additional compensation for experience.
