First Grade

1st Grade Teacher

Apr 19 2017 | Running River School | Sedona, AZ

Running River School, an independent 501c3 grades initiative, is nestled in magical Sedona, AZ. Sedona is often celebrated for its exquisite natural beauty, its healing land, outdoor recreational opportunities, creative inspiration, and conscious community. The school year 2017-2018 will be our fifth year of operation as a developing and progressive school. We were founded by a small group of dedicated families committed to a stronger future for our planet. Within this auspicious framework, our past four years have been greatly successful and more rewarding than we ever could have imagined.

Candidates must have a collegial spirit enabling them to work closely with committed, passionate parents/board of directors and dedicated colleagues, and be ready to join us whole-heartedly in being an integral and creative part of a developing school serving a growing community. This position would appeal to a teacher looking to participate in the new and creative energy that comes from a budding endeavor, to create positive change through education, and an intimate school/work environment.

We are a young, growing initiative school run by parent volunteers. Through the years we have come to know what it takes to be a part of an initiative: grounded, strong-willed, a wellspring of inner faith, intrinsically motivated and self directed, organized, mature, family-oriented, creative, highly flexible, interested in personal and interpersonal growth, comfortable in a small/intimate community, courageous, open-hearted and able to leave the ego at the door … ready to “roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty” for the good of the planet!

Running River School is accepting applications for a salaried teaching position serving our 1st grade classroom. The individual filling this position will be responsible for guiding their class through a developmentally-appropriate, Waldorf curriculum, as well as some special classes. In the following year it will be a combined 1/2 class; ability/desire to meet the challenge of the diverse needs of a mixed grade classroom is also recommended. The ideal candidate for this position is Waldorf certified/OR currently in training (or possibly ready/willing to train), passionate about progressive pedagogy and confident in their ability to make a commitment to a growing initiative.
