Choir and Orchestra Teacher
Live Oak Waldorf School is looking for a special person who could lead our choirs: fourth and fifth grade as well as sixth, seventh, and eighth grade; our orchestra program; and teach music to the lower grades. You would also be involved in our concerts and fairs.
Our greater parent body is community-minded and enjoys concerts, lectures and festivals on our beautiful forty acre campus. We offer many other rich programs including Spanish, Handwork, Woodwork, Eurythmy and Movement Education. The dedicated and experienced faculty members of Live Oak hold true to the principles of Waldorf education, and we deeply value the integral roles of mentoring support and the invested work of the College of Teachers. Our faculty and Board of Trustees enjoy a warm collegial relationship and work collaboratively with our parent community to create an educational environment that is aligned with the ideals of Waldorf Education and the school's mission and goals.
Founded in the fall of 1976, Live Oak is fully accredited by AWSNA and serves 200 children from preschool through eighth grade. We are nestled centrally in the Sierra foothills, 45 minutes east of Sacramento and 1 hour west of Donner Summit between the Bear River and the north fork of the American River. The surrounding area is an adventureland for the outdoor-minded who enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and water sports including river rafting. The numerous trail systems are frequented by horseback riders, hikers, runners and mountain bikers.
Live Oak is where the Olympic Games--The Pentathlon, was first brought to Waldorf fifth grades and still continues to thrive for Waldorf students from the Sierra Foothills and Sacramento Valley. Our children enjoy day field trips to farms, Native American sites, caverns, railroad tunnels built by Chinese laborers in the 1800s, mining sites, fish hatcheries, rivers and waterfalls, ski slopes, and museums. Fortunately, we are also close enough to the coast to plan multiple-day field trips there, with the blessing of coming home to a less crowded environment.
The ideal candidate would be familiar with Waldorf Education, a stringed instrument player (we currently have violin, viola, cello players) and obviously enjoys and has experience teaching the above range of music.
