** Update! Garland is offering a sign-on bonus for this position!

The Garland School is seeking assistant teachers to work in our Waldorf-inspired, nature-based program starting soon in fall 2022. The assistant will work alongside a lead teacher. This is a great opportunity for someone seeking an introduction to Waldorf-inspired work with young children, and/or working with children outdoors in all weather.

Along with nature immersion and Waldorf-inspired principles, the school's educational philosophy incorporates the work of Emmi Pikler and Helle Heckmann. Our outdoor time includes walking the trails, exploring the woods, working in the vegetable garden, and wading in the stream. We serve a local and organic breakfast, lunch, and snack daily. We follow a seasonal rhythm in our curriculum and have four Waldorf-inspired festivals per school year.

Job Type: Full-time and part-time, starting soon in fall 2022.
