6th Grade/Outdoor School in Florida 2023-24
Spring River School is seeking a classroom-experienced, enthusiastic candidate who is excited about working in a growing school with an all-outdoor environment. Your classroom without walls is steps from the ocean in a beautiful preserve filled with all the beauty northeast Florida has to offer.
This position will take our 6th-grade class on a three-year journey beginning in the 2023-24 school year. This educational journey will include leading a diverse group of students through this critical developmental stage to help them discover their strengths and show them, through engagement in the curriculum, why they are needed in this world.
The ideal candidate will have three or more years teaching at the Middle School Level, whether in a traditional or non-traditional setting, a Bachelor's or more advanced degree in Education, a commitment to self-development, and an excitement to work in an all-outdoor school setting, carrying primary responsibilities to deliver a rigorous, multi-disciplinary, arts-infused education to your students. Waldorf Teacher training and experience is a big plus but could be arranged through our school for the right candidate. Our current faculty is engaged in Building Bridges to Waldorf Teacher Training with the Center for Anthroposophy.
We offer competitive salaries, 100% tuition remission, a health stipend to use as you wish, paid time off, mentoring and support in and out of the classroom, and paid professional development to include Waldorf Teacher Training if there is alignment with our Waldorf Pedagogy. We provide one teaching assistant in each classroom, internal student support services, and opportunities for leadership within the college of teachers.
Spring River, located on the coastline of Northeast Florida, is an initiative of Jacksonville Educational Community, a pioneering non-profit organization founded by parents and local educators driven by a common desire to create a transformative educational experience focused on the whole-child approach. This impulse led to the establishment of Florida's first Waldorf-inspired K-8 all-outdoor home education program. We also offer parent-child classes for ages birth to 5, a parent-led playgroup, a two-day nature immersion homeschool enrichment class, and we are exploring a 9th-grade offering for the school year 2023-24.
