Eastside Community School is nestled on five acres in the Sammamish Plateau area of Issaquah, WA. We serve students from Pre-school through Grade 9, with a parent and tot class for those just beginning their journey in Waldorf Education.
We seek an experienced Spanish Teacher to teach classes from Grade one to Grade 8 for the 2022-23 school year. Be our newest colleague!
The ideal candidate will have a deep knowledge of the Spanish language and culture. They will have experience working with children of different ages, as well as bringing Spanish to the faculty and parents. Our community is thriving, and we are frequently welcoming new families to our school, thus we are seeking a Spanish teacher who is able to clearly communicate the benefits and value of a world language to those who may not yet be familiar with the value of language study.
The faculty circle at ECS engages deeply with how to keep our teaching alive and dynamic – encouraging the type of “living thinking” that brings forth new ideas in our students, faculty, and community alike. With both the stability of an established community, and the fresh pioneer spirit of a relatively new Board, we find ourselves in a unique position of being able to draw on the strength of the past, and to also ask ourselves questions like what it truly means to be a Waldorf school at this particular juncture in human history, and how we can go beyond labels or dogma to meet the lived experience of our students each day.
• Baccalaureate degree in Spanish or in Education with proficiency in Spanish language and culture
• Experience teaching children from grades one through eight
• Waldorf Teaching Certificate and/or Waldorf teaching experience preferred
Salary is commensurate with experience and teaching certification. Benefits include dental and health insurance, partial tuition remission, and the possibility for professional development support and mentoring.
