Class Teacher, 2019-2020 School Year

Monadnock Waldorf School in Keene, New Hampshire seeks a class teacher to join our dynamic faculty for the 2019-2020 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 class teacher will have a strong commitment to working collaboratively, engaging in ongoing professional development, and growing into leadership within our faculty circle.

We are a fully accredited Waldorf School founded in 1976. Our Faculty, Administration, and Board of Trustees enjoy a solid working relationship, allowing us to offer the depth of the Waldorf curriculum in collegial, intentional partnership. 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, and Sophia’s Hearth Family Center to create a vibrant and family friendly community. Boston is 85 miles away, and great outdoor activities for all seasons are a short drive from town.
