Seeking World Language Teacher for 2022/23
Mountain Laurel Waldorf School, located in the heart of New Paltz, NY is seeking an experienced World Language teacher for Grades 1-8. We are particularly interested in a teacher of a language with a non-European alphabet, such as Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Swahili or Hindi, but we are open to all.
A Nursery through Eighth Grade school, Mountain Laurel Waldorf School was founded in 1983 by a group of parents searching for an educational alternative for their children. The school is housed in a charming Victorian mansion, circa 1876, which is in walking distance from the village center of New Paltz, Historic Huguenot Street (the oldest street in America), the State University of New York (SUNY) campus, and a large community playground and village green where our elementary school children play.
Located in the beautiful Mid-Hudson Valley, New Paltz is approximately ninety miles from New York City. It is home to many active artists and ecological groups. Covering the pristine Shawangunk Ridge, Minnewaska State Park, the adjoining Mohonk Preserve, as well as the renowned Mohonk Mountain House nature preserve have miles of hiking and biking trails. In addition, two major centers of Anthroposophical endeavor, Spring Valley with Sunbridge College and Hawthorne Valley are close by.
The school currently has a mandate group system of governance and a committed College with an active and supportive Board of Trustees. Our staff numbers 25.
