Good communication, wholesome presence (especially around the children) and openness to new ideas and teaching practices are a must. This teacher would work with other teachers/parents in the co-op to make sure the children are receiving a well rounded experience. This teacher should be willing to accept guidance on new ideas such as Waldorf teaching or how to incorporate bhakti yoga practices into lessons for the children. Our intention is to hold a peaceful, loving , and spiritual environment for the children. Experience and a love for children is required. We are open to those with a variety of experience including alternative education, homeschooling, tutoring and other forms of teaching. We would welcome children of teachers into the co-op. Beyond the 9:30-1pm hours there would be 1-2 hours of paid meetings each week for planning. This position would start the 9:30-1 hours in August. Prior to this we would have paid planning times. The pay would be $14-17 /hours depending on experience.
