Live Oak Waldorf is in search of the right person to join our faculty as our 3rd grade class teacher. Our 3rd grade classroom is located on a beautiful hillside with large, enclosed animal areas and a large garden plot; the classroom is spacious and has a full kitchen. Our school is enjoying a full return to concerts, lectures and festivals in-person on our beautiful, 40-acre campus. We offer many rich programs including Spanish, Handwork, Woodwork, Music, Orchestra, Movement and Eurythmy. The dedicated and experienced faculty members of Live Oak hold true to the principles of Waldorf education; we deeply value the integral roles of mentoring support, weekly study, child and class studies and the invested work of the College of Teachers. Our faculty and Board of Trustees enjoy a warm, collegial relationship and work collaboratively with a strong parent body to create an educational environment that is aligned with the ideals of Waldorf Education and the school's mission and goals.
Founded in the fall of 1976, Live Oak is fully accredited by AWSNA and serves over 200 children from preschool through eighth grade. Our community is the birthplace of the Pentathlon, which began here in 1986. Our 40-acre campus in Meadow Vista, California, is nestled between the Bear River and the north fork of the American River and is located in the Sierra foothills, 45 minutes east of Sacramento and 1 hour west of Donner Summit. The surrounding area is a wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy skiing, snowboarding and water sports, including river rafting. The numerous trail systems are frequented by horseback riders, hikers, runners and mountain bikers.
