Grades Teacher

Apr 18 2017 | Madison Waldorf School | Madison, WI

Madison Waldorf School seeks an experienced and warm-hearted teacher for our combined Grade 4/5 class. The children in that class have formed a cohesive, convivial, spirited community that loves to sing and paint. They are confident and full of imagination. They are calling out for a teacher to guide and lead them – could it be you?

We are looking for an individual with a collegial spirit, a love of teaching, a commitment to ongoing personal and professional development, and a desire to help shape the destiny of our growing school.

This job is a full-time teaching position. Qualified candidates have a bachelor’s degree in addition to Waldorf teacher training. Persons currently enrolled in a Waldorf certification program are especially encouraged to apply. The school offers a competitive wage and benefits package including a health care stipend, funding for professional development, and tuition remission.

Founded in 2006, our school serves over 90 children in Early Childhood and the Grades program. In recent years we have devoted significant time and energy toward developing our Middle School program, and there is a great deal of enthusiasm for that aspect of our work. Our curriculum includes Spanish, German, Music, Woodworking, Movement, Eurythmy and Handwork. In addition, we have a parent/child program to introduce young families to Waldorf education. Madison Waldorf School is a developing school with AWSNA and WECAN.

The school is located in the vibrant city of Madison, WI. Home to the state capital and the flagship campus of the University of Wisconsin, Madison offers one of the richest intellectual and cultural environments in the world for a city of its size. Neighborhood festivals and cultural events of all types abound, and this small city of 280,000 people is truly a place where there is always "too much to do." Madison offers a rich mix of farmer’s markets. natural food co- operatives and stores, and a wide variety of CSAs. Outdoor recreation is also a way of life for Madisonians: along with the city's beautiful location between two large lakes, the city boasts numerous parks and many miles of bike and walking paths.

With all this and more, many residents will claim that Madison offers an ideal place to live and raise a family, and it is no surprise that Madison is regularly cited as one of the most livable cities in the US.
