First Grade 2015-2016
We are seeking a first grade teacher to join our dynamic faculty for the 2015-2016 school year. The successful candidate will be a fully trained Waldorf teacher or a highly skilled teacher-in-training ready to settle into our school community. Our first grade teacher will have a strong commitment to working collaboratively, to engaging in on-going professional development, and to growing into leadership within our faculty circle. We are planning for a group of 15 first graders.
We are a fully accredited Waldorf School founded in 1976 serving 200 students and their families. Our faculty of 30 guides two nursery-kindergartens; grades one through eight with six special subjects (handwork, woodwork, French, movement/outdoor education, and eurythmy); and 43 high school students in grades nine through twelve who all benefit from the full Waldorf curriculum.
Our College of Teachers and Board of Trustees enjoy a solid working relationship, allowing us to offer the depth of the Waldorf curriculum in a financially stable and well cared for environment. Anthroposophy is at the heart of the work of the faculty. Our active parent body works tirelessly to support and improve our school.
Keene is the commercial center of the beautiful Monadnock Region of New Hampshire. It’s a small city (population 25,000) in the southwestern corner of the state with a lively downtown, active cultural life, and many lovely parks and trails. The natural beauty of the hills and lakes combine with the cultural richness of great music, an outstanding library, a branch of the state university system, nearby Antioch University/New England (home to a Waldorf teacher education program), and Sophia’s Hearth Family Center to create a vibrant and family friendly community. Boston is 85 miles away and great seasonal outdoor activities are a short drive from town.
Please send a letter of interest, your resume, and names and contact information for three professional references to Jacqueline Bellamy, College of Teachers, Monadnock Waldorf School. Keene, NH 03431 or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
