Lead Teacher - Grades (2022-2023)
Running River school is an independent, non-profit school in the heart of Sedona, AZ serving Grades 1-8. We believe in the holistic wellness of our children and have continued with in-person schooling through the pandemic.

We are calling in a passionate, warm, talented Waldorf-trained (preferred) teacher to lead in the grades in the 2022/2023 school year, with a June start (we pay through the summer; school starts early August).
Sedona is a profoundly powerful place, with stunning landscape and a beautiful series of trail-systems at our doorstep. If you are interested in inspiring our children to continue growing into the future leaders, change-makers, and stewards of our planet please reach out.
