High School Physical Sciences Teacher

Nov 20 2017 | Monadnock Waldorf School | Keene, NH

Monadnock Waldorf School seeks a full time high school physical sciences teacher beginning July 2018. The position also includes math skills classes (Geometry and Calculus) and (ideally) the coordination of our computer programming curriculum. A knowledge of Earth Science is helpful but not essential. We invite teachers to apply who may be interested in administrative responsibilities combined with a lesser teaching load. Candidates interested in only teaching guest blocks are also welcomed to apply.

The ideal candidate will have completed or currently be enrolled in an AWSNA-recognized Waldorf teacher education program. We look for candidates who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about teaching out of the philosophical and methodological principles of Waldorf education—in particular, the Goethean/phenomenological approach to science—and who are committed to—and find joy in—working with adolescents. Candidates with previous HS teaching experience receive preference, especially if that experience is in a Waldorf school. Candidates must hold a Bachelor's degree in a related area; a Masters or PhD is preferred. Additional interests and skills in the arts, movement, outdoor education, health, and student initiatives are considered beneficial to candidacy.

For the right candidate or new teacher seriously interested in becoming a Waldorf teacher, MWS supports Waldorf training and provides in-school mentorship. Full-time positions receive benefits and generous tuition remission for faculty children.

To apply, please send or email: 1) a letter of interest, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) biographical sketch, and 4) three references to: High School Hiring Committee, Monadnock Waldorf High School, 146 School Street, Keene, NH 03431. The committee consists of:
Karl Schurman: [email protected]
Kim McCormick: [email protected]
