BRRR! Are you already tired of scraping frost off your windshield? Looking for a patch of warm sunshine? Sunrise School of Miami is growing and is actively seeking a dynamic, creative, and nurturing, part-time or full-time Movement Teacher.
Ideal candidates have experience teaching Movement in grades 1-8 in a Waldorf School and have certification in Spacial Dynamics®, Eurythmy, or other movement disciplines. Experience as a physical education teacher, trained movement therapist, and/or Occupational Therapist is also desirable, blended with a demonstrated ability to craft a developmentally appropriate movement curriculum for groups of children ages 7-14.
We are ideally located on a tropical, 6-acre, treed campus, a quarter-mile from Biscayne Bay which offers some of the best sailing in the world. When our Kindergarteners play outside, their excited voices blend with wild macaws’ and parrots’ raucous calls. Our 1st – 4th graders play in a stately live oak tree stand’s dappled shade. Fifth graders practice for the Pentathlon outdoors, in South Florida’s year-round warmth, while Middle Schoolers grow papayas and passion fruit in the school garden and cycle a mile to a citizen-based plant and animal species research project at Deering Estate, a stunning ecological treasure on Biscayne Bay. Most school plays are staged in a lovely outdoor coral rock amphitheater on campus.
Our talented faculty of almost 20 experienced teachers nurtures an environment of warmth, collaboration, and joyful collegiality. Our dedicated Subject teachers provide Spanish and Mandarin language, woodworking, movement, chorus, handwork, orchestra, and gardening instruction. Our parents are supportive and involved in many facets of the school, including active participation in festivals and creating items for our school store.
We value teachers who enjoy nurturing healthy relationships with parents, students, and colleagues. We seek candidates with excellent teaching, classroom management, and communication skills and a deep understanding of students and their development.
The ideal candidate is self-directed, creative, artistic, collaborative, knowledgeable of and committed to Waldorf education and Anthroposophy. South Florida’s mix of cultures and languages make Miami an adventurous place to live, play, and work! We invite you to join us.
Candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree or higher. We are seeking someone who has prior teaching experience (ideally in a Waldorf school) as well as completion of, or current enrollment in, Waldorf teacher training. Student teachers in training are encouraged to apply as well.
We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including support for professional development.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and names and contact information of three professional references, to Esther Rodrigues at firstname.lastname@example.org
