1st/2nd Grade Homeschool Position
We are a collective of families, Waldorf teachers, and community members committed to bringing the best of Waldorf principles, sustainable living practices, and the wisdom of Hawaiian culture. Our collective is home to over 50 families, with children ages 6.5-15. We have been together on the island of Maui for over 7 years; prior to that, we were on Hawai'i island for 11 years.
We are looking for a seasoned Waldorf tutor who can lead a first/second grade class and would join our homeschool community as an independent contractor. This position is best suited for a gentle, kind-hearted and imaginative soul who also has the ability to have appropriate and consistent boundaries... someone who is truly a loving authority with children. Our classrooms are customized indoor/outdoor environments on the private properties of our member families.
We can offer $30 an hour, with 3 additional paid hours each week for preparation, along with paid hourly faculty meetings that are held each Tuesday after class.
(Within our community, we MAY be able to offer assistance in securing a tiny house, [at least as a landing space] for you at a reduced rental rate). Our collective holds classes 4 days per week, beginning September 6th.
This is a highly creative environment, and it is very possible for you to teach other specialty classes after school and/or other days if you are interested. Some of our teachers offer exciting Winter/Spring Break camps to increase their income, as well as teaching Aerial Arts, Garden Class, Violin, Choir, and more. Additionally, we come together as a community several times a year with community and class plays, Circus Arts performances, and yearly festivals celebrating the Hawaiian Makahiki season, May Day, Renaissance Faire and more.
Please reach out with a resume, photo and a bit about yourself and see if this might feel like a place you’d love to join!
E Komo mai! :-)
