Tucson Waldorf School Seeks a half time Educational Support Teacher

An experienced Educational Support Teacher will address the school's remedial needs from a holistic point of view and be able to support teachers and their students from nursery through Grade 8. The ideal candidate must have Waldorf Remedial Training and previous experience at a Waldorf School. Training and experience in literacy and/or mathematics tutoring Grades 1-8 is a plus. In order to supplement the half time salary and continue to provide for the varied educational support needs within the school, the Educational Support Teacher may take on contract work with individual families.

Founded in 1993, TWS is a full member school of AWSNA, and the only accredited independent Waldorf school in Arizona. Our faculty is committed to working out of Anthroposophy in support of the developing child. We serve over 210 students in Nursery classes through Grade 8; many more families with very young children participate in weekly parent-child classes held on campus. Since 2008, we have been situated on an almost 10 acre site in a rural historic district of north-central Tucson, with beautiful views of the Catalina Mountains. The property is an old horse ranch with endless possibilities. We are continuously developing our site, looking to meet the needs of our growing school. Learn more about our school at www.tucsonwaldorf.org.

Tucson has the lovely, relaxed feel of a small town and the amenities of a sophisticated city. In 2015, UNESCO named Tucson a City of Gastronomy, because of the thousands of years of food cultivation in our valley, and the multi-cultural culinary richness that exists here still. (See http://ediblebajaarizona.com/tucson-designated-unesco-world-city-of-gastronomy.) In addition to our sunny weather, Tucson has a strong artistic community and offers a wide range of cultural events, museums, film series, theater productions, and musical performances. The University of Arizona is one of the leading research institutions in the country and draws many intellectual leaders to Tucson. Opportunities for outdoor adventure and exploration abound. Within a short drive, you will find interesting small towns, national parks, and historic landmarks. Four hours south, on the Sea of Cortez, you will find beautiful beaches and diving opportunities.

Interested candidates should contact Linda Braun by Thursday, April 27, 2017. Please send a letter of interest; your resume; and names and contact information of three references to Tucson Waldorf School, 3605 E. River Road, Tucson, Arizona 85718, or email these materials to [email protected]
