Emerson Waldorf School

Chapel Hill, NC, USA

Full time



Jan 20

Class Teacher 2023-2024

We are seeking a new lead teacher to join our grade school faculty beginning in the 2023-2024 school year. We need a strong, professional teacher who is interested in joining our efforts toward school innovation in the areas of diversity and equity, ready to help reimagine our Waldorf school to create a more inclusive and equitable school program and environment.  

The Emerson Waldorf School is a dual-accredited, well-established school with a rich program. We are located on a 54-acre wooded campus and farm set on the outskirts of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the vibrant Research Triangle area. Within this diverse region, our campus is in a small rural and residential area adjacent to the 700-acre Duke Forest nature preserve. Our setting provides a rural atmosphere with the cultural advantages of a city. We serve students from infancy through high school, and actively develop a professional culture of communication, collaboration, and professional and personal development.

We welcome all applications, but our ideal candidate is an experienced teacher trained at an AWSNA-affiliated institute who has solid, demonstrated classroom skills working with grade school students, a deep understanding of the Waldorf pedagogy, and a serious lifelong commitment to anthroposophy and education. A college degree is a necessity, and post-graduate studies are preferred. Nonetheless, we will always hire the candidate who best suits our students, our community, and who best aligns with our school’s strategic priorities.

Emerson Waldorf School is fully committed to Equal Employment Opportunity and to attracting, retaining, developing and promoting the most qualified employees without regard to their race, gender, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, age, physical or mental disability, citizenship status, veteran status, or any other characteristic prohibited by state or local law. We are dedicated to providing a work environment free from discrimination and harassment, and where employees are treated with respect and dignity. 

Interested candidates should send a letter, resume, and three references to: tpienaar@emersonwaldorf.org
