Dreaming of: A First Grade Teacher in Montana

Jun 05 2017 | World Family School | Bozeman, MT

World Family School, located in beautiful Bozeman, Montana, is seeking an enthusiastic First Grade Teacher for the 2017-2018 school year.

You must truly love children! You are bright-eyed, bushy tailed, warm hearted, resourceful and pleasant. You have a great imagination, a keen sense of ethics and values, and an appreciation for beauty. You are adaptable, resilient, approachable, composed, disciplined and honest. You can sing, are a gifted storyteller, an artist at heart. You might know how to knit or are willing to learn. You really, truly love nature and this Earth and are willing to incorporate that into everyday activities outside and to foster a connection in children to our earth and the child's own true self. You are familiar with biodynamic gardening, love getting your hands in the soil, and love bees and woodworking. You believe stomping through puddles and getting muddy are foundational pillars of childhood. You are committed to self and community development, have clear and capable communication and writing skills, and are prepared to work within a dynamic pioneer school.

Our ideal candidate is trained in Waldorf teaching methods and has graduated from, is enrolled in, or is willing to enroll in an AWSNA accredited program, and/or has experience teaching in a Waldorf grades program.

World Family School is a non-profit established in 1974. For many years music, eurythmy, and biodynamic gardening were key components of the school. In recent years the program has dwindled to small seasonal offerings in support of homeschool families. In September 2016 it started back up with a fully operating multi-age kindergarten, and a great group of 18 families. Our school and community has been waiting for the right time to really blossom, and this is it! We are now preparing to grow the school, by adding a first grade and a second kindergarten this fall. We plan to add an additional grade each year thereafter. We are also in the process to become developing members of WECAN, with future plans to start the AWSNA certification process.

We are offering a competitive salary (DOE), hard work, heart work, study groups, and the opportunity to work with an enthusiastic community of committed families and visionaries. We just need YOU to join our team!

To apply, please submit a creative letter of interest, a resume, and a brief biography to [email protected] We can’t wait to hear from you!
