Lead Nursery Teacher
Do you feel grounded and energized when you spend time with young children? Do you have boundless patience, a playful spirit, and a calm and caring approach to classroom management? Lake Champlain Waldorf School is seeking a lead teacher for a class of 4-10 toddler-aged children.
Our well-established K-12 school is both grounded and innovative, rooted in a developmental curriculum and reaching into the future through an educational emphasis on social, racial, and environmental justice. We offer a vibrant learning community, a consistently strong and capable Board of Trustees, and a clear and collaborative governance structure. Our two campuses are located on over 25 acres in beautiful northern Vermont.

This is a full-time position.
