Experienced Middle School Teacher for 2022/23
This job is no longer accepting applications.
Love where you work! The Waldorf School of Princeton sits on 20 acres of beautifully tended campus, including access to a creek, forest walks, and carefully tended gardens. The campus is within easy reach of the thriving village center of Hopewell and the college town of Princeton. Further afield, New York City, Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore provide endless entertainment at weekends.
An Associate Member of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America, the Waldorf School of Princeton is committed to providing a rich Waldorf education to all its students, from pre-K through 8th grade. In 2021, the school committed to a nine-year plan to build our school into a beacon for the local community, with a team of dedicated, well-supported, excellent educators at its heart. We are excited to welcome new members of our team to help us on this journey.
Joining the Waldorf School of Princeton, you will find yourself among kindred spirits. Our faculty and staff form a supportive group, working together for the children in our care, encouraging one another to do their best work, and extending grace when we struggle.
Teachers who are not familiar with Waldorf education will be supported through the training and professional development needed to deliver our carefully crafted curriculum that meets the developmental needs of each child.
We are seeking an experienced Middle School Waldorf teacher to help form a team of teachers whose work is centered in the upper grades. This person would be a class teacher as well as teach in an area of their expertise and interest. As part of a committed strategic plan to build our middle school, we are building a team-teaching model where each teacher teaches to their strengths and carries the students through their middle school experience in a specific area such as the sciences, history, language arts, etc.
Candidates should be familiar with the benchmarks of a Waldorf middle school curriculum and have the ability to support newer teachers in curricular matters. Awareness of the growth and developmental experiences of this age group is equally important, as well as an ability to help young people problem-solve and work through interpersonal issues. Ideal candidates will have taught middle school grades in a Waldorf School for at least five years.
If you are interested in shaping a program and working closely with a team of talented and dedicated teachers, you belong at the Waldorf School of Princeton.
We are particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates with life experiences less well-represented in the independent school sector.
Our teaching salary scale for 2022-23 for teachers with this level of experience ranges from $53,733 to $80,000 depending on experience, and skills offered. We provide means-tested tuition remission of up to 90%, and a generous package of benefits.
