Kindergarten Lead Teacher 2023-2024
Potomac Crescent Waldorf School is seeking a lead five-day Mixed-Age Kindergarten teacher for the 2023-2024 school year to join our vibrant Waldorf school in historic Old Town Alexandria. While we have been in Northern Virginia for over 20 years, we are moving into our newly renovated long-term location and are excited to start a new chapter in our school’s history. The parks in our neighborhood have beautiful views of the Potomac River.
Our unique salary and governance structure values all teachers and includes competitive salaries at every level. We award additional pay to recognize completion of Waldorf teacher training certification and Waldorf teaching experience. We also offer strong mentoring support for new lead teachers, and we support engagement in Waldorf conferences and professional development opportunities as much as possible. Our early childhood teachers are a strong part of our faculty circle and participate in weekly full faculty meetings and early childhood meetings. We value pedagogical study and shared artistic work in both groups.
Ideal candidates will have a confident classroom presence with strong social and communication skills, the ability to work cooperatively with other teachers, and a love for children and teaching. We are seeking candidates who have completed Waldorf Early Childhood training at a teacher preparation program or have great potential to succeed in this position and are receptive to mentoring and future training. This position is exempt.
We look forward to receiving your application! The full position description and employment application can be found on our school website, www.PotomacWaldorf.org. Interested candidates should email a letter of interest and a completed application to our personnel committee at email@example.com.
