Grades Class Teacher for 2017-18

Dec 04 2017 | Tucson Waldorf School | Tucson AZ

Tucson Waldorf School is seeking a grades class teacher for the 2018-19 school year to join our dedicated faculty. A successful candidate will be a Waldorf certified teacher or an experienced teacher who is close to completing an accredited Waldorf training program.

Founded in 1993, TWS is an independent Waldorf school encompassing early childhood through Grade 8, with a current enrollment of more than 225 students. Additionally we serve another 30 families with younger children in our parent-child classes. We are a full member school of AWSNA (the only one in Arizona.) Our strong, experienced faculty is committed to continuous growth and improvement, and our pedagogy is strongly rooted in Anthroposophy.. We work collaboratively alongside a dedicated administrative team, a supportive Parent Council, and a strong Board of Directors.

The school is situated on a 10 acre site in a rural historic district of north-central Tucson, just below the foothills of the beautiful Santa Catalina Mountains. Our land is home to abundant desert wildlife, and has a rich history of human settlement—first and longest by the Hohokam people and their descendents, and much later by Mormon farmers. Our property was most recently a horse ranch before we began to occupy it in 2008, and the renovated ranch house, horse stalls and other structures are still in use as classrooms and work spaces in addition to the lovely classroom buildings we’ve added. We are continuously developing our unique site to meet the needs of our growing school.

Tucson is situated in the lush Sonoran Desert and surrounded on all sides by mountain ranges. It has the lovely, relaxed feel of a small town and the amenities of a sophisticated city. In 2015, UNESCO named Tucson a World City of Gastronomy, because of the many thousands of years of food cultivation in our valley, and the multi-cultural culinary richness that exists here still. 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. We have a vibrant political culture, great coffee shops, and strong environmental principles. Opportunities for outdoor adventure and exploration abound; within 30 minutes to a few hours of driving, you can visit national parks, the mountains, and interesting small towns. Opportunities for hiking and cycling in and around the city are magnificent. Mexico is just over an hour to the south of us, and half a day’s drive will bring you to Puerto Peñasco, where you will find beautiful beaches and world-class diving. Yes, the desert is hot in the summer, but there are lots of opportunities for swimming, and cool mountains are nearby.

Please send your letter of interest and resume to Tucson Waldorf School, attention Linda Braun, 3605 E River Rd., Tucson, Arizona 85718, or email her at facultychair@tucsonwaldorf.org. To learn more about Tucson Waldorf School, visit www.tucsonwaldorf.org.
