The Sandpoint Waldorf School, in beautiful North Idaho, seeks an experienced, motivated, and enthusiastic first grade teacher. Our ideal candidates are trained in Waldorf education and have experience teaching. They should be committed to collegial work, self-development, and excellence in teaching.
The Sandpoint Waldorf School is a school of over 175 children, pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. We are in our 30th year and have been experiencing healthy enrollment, ongoing growth, and strong support from our community. We are grateful to have remained open for in-person instruction both this school year and last year, despite the pandemic. We have a strong, trained and experienced faculty and a supportive parent body. We have a full specialty program that includes Spanish, Japanese, Handwork, Movement, Strings Ensemble, Woodworking, Music, Education Support and Eurythmy (the latter only in a ten-week block). Our staff is full of creativity, experience and commitment, and we look forward to welcoming new teachers into our warm and caring community!
Sandpoint, Idaho, is one of North America's best kept secrets. We are located in a town of about 8,000, on the shores of the enchanting Lake Pend Oreille, surrounded by breathtaking mountains. We have many fine restaurants and shops and an impressive local art and music scene. Given the natural splendor, there is ample opportunity for summer boating and swimming at the lake or hiking the hundreds of miles of mountain trails and winter fun in the back country or at our world-class ski resort, Schweitzer Mountain Resort, just 20 minutes from town.
