Kindergarten Co-teacher

Jan 03 2018 | Golden Bridges School | San Francisco, CA

Kindergarten teacher 2018-19
Golden Bridges School, San Francisco, CA

School Overview
Golden Bridges School is a small, groundbreaking school entering it’s 6th full school year in September 2018. GBS was founded by Waldorf-trained teachers and currently operates in San Francisco’s Excelsior neighborhood serving preschool through third grade with 84 students and 19 staff members. The school intends to grow into a full preschool-8th grade school.

GBS is taking a fresh look at Waldorf education, asking what the children of today in San Francisco need from teachers and education in general. One major result of this question is the development of a robust outdoor curriculum. The kindergarten spends two days in an indoor classroom, two days at our urban farm 3 blocks away, and 1 day hiking in Glen Canyon. Teachers are just as committed to bringing Waldorf education indoors as they are bringing it outdoors in an urban farm setting.
We are also dedicated to becoming an anti-racist school, committed to social justice, internally and externally, that is inclusive and welcoming to all. We incorporate both anthroposophy and social justice in our weekly faculty meetings, where we delve deeper into exploring race, injustice, oppression and how urban Waldorf education can address these pressing issues. We ask that teachers be interested and on a path of exploring both anthroposophy and social justice.
For the 2018-2019 school year we are looking for one kindergarten co-teacher.
