This is an exceptional opportunity for an individual who is currently engaged in, or considering Waldorf teaching. It offers exposure to the full range of the Lower School Waldorf curriculum as well as experience working with children ages 7-14. Waldorf teaching experience will certainly be an advantage, but we are most interested in an individual who is adaptable, enthusiastic and works well with a wide range of teachers and students. We encourage all interested individuals to apply.
