Teacher for 1st/2nd grade class for fall 2015
Sunfield farm and Waldorf School located on a beautiful 83 acre campus, is one of a few schools in the nation located on a working farm. Our pristine land includes forests, wetlands and fields of a working biodynamic farm. We are located just a few miles south of Port Townsend, Washington, a unique Victorian seaport with a rich cultural life. We are surrounded by water, islands and beaches, and backed by the spectacular Olympic Mountains, all offering a multitude of outdoor opportunities. Seattle with all its big city attractions, as well as the Anthroposophical Society and Sound Circle Center for Arts and Anthroposophy, is only a two hour journey away.
Our school has been on the land for eight years. We currently serve 102 children in pre-k through grade seven. Next year we will add an eighth grade. We are a developing AWSNA affiliate. We have a dedicated faculty of eight teachers who enjoy their colleagueship, carry a strong appreciation for anthroposophy and feel blessed to be working in an environment where the rhythms of farm life are incorporated into the Waldorf curriculum.
We are seeking an experienced, Waldorf trained class teacher interested in being involved in a young developing school. The ideal candidate will have a pioneering spirit and an ability to work collaboratively. They must be grounded, resourceful and able to demonstrate flexibility, as well as nurture positive relationships within the class, parent body and colleagues. This teacher will bring joy and artistry to their work as they skillfully weave the curriculum together to meet the needs of a combined class.
We offer a competitive salary and tuition remission. For more information contact Beth Ann O’Dell, Organization Coordinator.
