Early Childhood Teacher
The Eugene Waldorf School is looking for an early childhood teacher who would assist in the morning kindergarten class and lead a combined class of preschool and kindergarten students in the afternoon. This would be a full time salaried position with benefits.
We are looking for a compassionate, enthusiastic, imaginative, nurturing person to join our group of early childhood teachers; a creative teacher who speaks to the children in imaginative pictures, who has a connection with nature and who is not averse to rainy weather! We are seeking a teacher who can establish a healthy rhythm with warmth and joy.
Our dynamic and dedicated community strives to take up Rudolf Steiner's indications for education in a living way. The teachers, committed to anthroposophy and social renewal, strive to work harmoniously together and are committed to self-development. We also work closely with Waldorf Teacher Education Eugene whose adult students, master teachers and lecturers further inspire and support the school.
Located between the beautiful Cascades and the pristine Pacific Coast, our area offers many outdoor and recreational activities. Home to the University of Oregon, Eugene also offers a host of cultural activities—a vibrant arts community, and a thriving theater and diverse music scene. Various farmer markets offer crafts and produce from many local artisans, and organic and biodynamic farmers. Eugene is a terrific place to raise and care for children, and the children are the center of our school. For further descriptions of our school and faculty, programs, campus and information about greater Eugene, please visit our website.
Lead teacher applicants are required to have a Waldorf teacher training certificate and teaching experience. We value the additional training of candidates with a bachelors degree. They should have excellent communication skills, work collegially and be enthusiastic about parent education. Benefits include tuition remission, family health insurance, professional development funds and mentoring. Salary depends on education and experience.
