The Waldorf School of Mendocino County seeks a First Grade Teacher for the 2022-2023 school year to begin the journey through the grades with an upright and energetic class. In our combined grades model, this class will be joined by a rising First Grade in 2023 to become Class 1 & 2, ready to move through the grades together.

We look for teachers who are committed to:
 continually working toward a deepening understanding of the developing child, particularly out of the spiritual insight of Anthroposophy.
 recognizing students as developing spiritual beings, each with individual destinies and unlimited potential, and to educate them with active interest, joy and enthusiasm.
 teaching subjects artistically and imaginatively based on the threefold nature of the child, and in support of their physical and spiritual forces.
 striving to enrich the feeling quality of the children’s inner lives and to connect their will forces with their awakening thinking capacities.
 working on inner development and strive to improve one’s talents and capacities.
 relating in a healthy, life supporting, and responsible manner with the school community (parents, students, colleagues, and alumni), by working together out of one’s higher self.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits including tuition remission, mentoring and on-going teacher development and training opportunities.
