Kindergarten Teaching Assistant
Friends of Willow Tree is seeking a TK/Kindergarten Teaching Assistant for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Friends of Willow Tree is an enrichment center that offers a curriculum inspired by Waldorf methods to students in grades Kindergarten through 8th. We have an active parent body, a supportive board of directors, and a committed faculty.
Our community will welcome you to our friendly village in North County San Diego. The town of Fallbrook has a lovely Waldorf community, biodynamic farms, study groups, and close proximity to WISC (Waldorf Institute of Southern California). Our program serves a diverse population that might not otherwise have access to a curriculum inspired by Waldorf methods.
We are seeking an individual who possesses high expectations, a healthy sense of personal accountability, a strong “teacherly” presence, a positive attitude, and excellent communication skills.
Our TK/Kindergarten program combines extensive play-based learning with academic roots based in Waldorf education. Our teaching assistant will work with the lead teacher to support the children with the joy of domestic and practical work. The daily work includes caring for the classroom and outdoor space along with painting, sewing, puppet shows, seasonal crafts, and celebrations.
As an enrichment program, we work with families who are homeschooling and are either enrolled with an independent study charter or have filed their own Private School Affidavit (PSA).
We value excellent teaching and classroom management skills, as well as a deep understanding of child development. We look to our teachers to lead not only the children but also the parents in their education.
