Points to consider before applying to Windsong School: Windsong School has experienced extraordinary growth since its founding almost 12 years ago. Our workspace and campus are unconventionally laid out. This situation leads to opportunities for familiarity, much student and staff interaction, and requires a high degree of cultivated and committed camaraderie from all staff members. The benefits are manifold, but those who do not possess strong interpersonal skills may find themselves unable to enjoy the busy atmosphere.
Our mission to make Waldorf education accessible to all and the rapid school growth we’ve seen over the past years have cultivated an environment of financial prudence. A degree of resourcefulness and an ability to use simplicity as a tool will be required.
To apply, please compile a letter of interest, a professional resume, contact information for three professional references, and a brief biography. All materials must be included and sent together to firstname.lastname@example.org.
