EC Lead and Grades Class Teachers
Portland Waldorf School is looking for full-time EC and Grades class teachers for the 2022-23 school year. These will be full time teaching positions that will begin in Summer of 2022. Come join our vibrant, diverse, urban education community. Dedicated parents and teachers have, over these past 40 years, created one of the most dynamic independent Waldorf schools in the northwest United States.
Waldorf training and teaching experience are important to us, as is a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice. Our greatest interest is in working with teachers who love the Waldorf curriculum and are focused on the learning capacities of their students. We see this moment in education as being pivotal offering many opportunities to update our curriculum and working in new ways to meet the needs of today’s students.
Portland Waldorf School educates children for the whole of life to uplift humanity. Out of the insights of anthroposophy, the school nurtures the imagination, cultivates the intellect, and recognizes the unique spirit of each child in the community. In this way, children are surrounded by striving adults and strengthened individually and socially to meet the challenges of life. Students emerge as creative, independent thinkers who meet the world with initiative and purpose.
Our school embraces the opportunity to serve children and their families from all walks of life, from early childhood through high school, building on Rudolf Steiner’s transformative vision of the human being to educate toward a more equitable and sustainable society.
Portland Waldorf School, a 7-acre campus comprising wetlands, fields, streams, and gardens, stands at the intersection of city and country, drawing its strength from easy access to river and island, as well as farmland, forest, public transit, and urban environments. From this diversity of experience its heart beats – where history meets innovation, culture meets nature, and family meets community.
Our teachers and staff members work enthusiastically and energetically to engage their students and are dedicated to Waldorf education. They work collaboratively with their colleagues and the parent community to create an educational environment that is aligned with the school mission and program goals.
Salary is dependent upon education and experience. Benefits offered include medical and dental insurance, 401(k) plan, tuition remission and professional development opportunities. Please send resume, letter of interest, and three professional references including emails and phone numbers (in PDF format only) to email@example.com
