Class Teacher Grade 1 Outdoor School
Do you have a pioneering spirit? Could this be your dream job? We are seeking a classroom-experienced, enthusiastic candidate who is excited about working in a developing school with an all-outdoor environment. We are a Waldorf-inspired K-8 program in northeast Florida serving families who have chosen home education - part of the growing “home school revolution!” Your classroom without walls is steps from the ocean and is a beautiful preserve filled with all the beauty northeast Florida has to offer.
Teaching at Spring River includes a commitment to looping with a class for the duration of the lower or middle school years, forming a strong bond with both students and families. The ideal candidate will have two or more years of teaching experience, whether in a traditional or non-traditional setting, a Bachelor’s or more advanced degree in a related field, a commitment to self-development, and an excitement to work in an all-outdoor school setting, carrying primary responsibilities to deliver a multi-disciplinary, arts-infused education to your students.
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 will consider relocation assistance for the right candidate.
We provide one teaching assistant in each classroom, leadership and mentorship through a Pedagogical Administrator and two faculty chairs, internal student support services, and opportunities for leadership within the college of teachers.
Who is Spring River?
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.
