Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School is seeking an experienced Middle School and High School Math Teacher to support the teaching of mathematics in Grades 7 through 12. We are looking for someone with experience both in mathematics and in Waldorf pedagogy.
Depending on one’s background and interest, this position would be a carrying faculty member in either the Middle School or High School at Hawthorne Valley and would support the appropriate level with clubs, trips, tutoring, recess and other supportive roles. There is also the opportunity to do some main lesson block teaching in one or the other level, based on experience and interest. Other areas of potential involvement include the Middle School Science Fair and the High School Science Olympiad team. Our science and math teachers work collaboratively in the High School and Middle School both to support the needs of our students and to ensure a developmental arc to the curriculum that spans the grades.
A Nursery through Grade 12 School, Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School (HVS) is situated on a 900-acre biodynamic farm surrounded by expansive views of the nearby Catskill and Berkshire Mountains. The school is 2.5 hours north of New York City. HVS is a branch of the Hawthorne Valley Association (HVA), which supports several Anthroposophical initiatives including the Hawthorne Valley Farm and Farmstore, a Farm Apprenticeship program, a Farmscape Ecology Program, the Alkion Waldorf teacher-training program, a Place-Based Learning Center, the Nature Institute and other programs. In the coming year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary, having welcomed our first class of students in September 1973. Our Berkshire-Taconic region, straddling New York and Massachusetts, is heavily steeped in Anthroposophical initiatives including four Camphill communities, the Rudolf Steiner Library, two K-12 schools, a Christian Community Church, Steiner Books, Waldorf Publications, and numerous Biodynamic Farms and homeschool groups.
Candidates are expected to a have BA degree, or its equivalent, to have completed an accredited Waldorf teacher training program, and to have had experience teaching at a Waldorf school. We are interested in building the diversity of our staff and creating an inclusive community that supports equity by dismantling racist systems and practices. In addition to a commitment to the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion work that is so necessary in our age, our teachers must demonstrate an unflagging devotion to children and a strong grounding in Waldorf Education. We are looking for candidates dedicated to excellence in teaching and to developing strong, collaborative working relationships with colleagues, parents, and the wider community.
