2014-2015 Position Openings: First Grade Teacher
The White Mountain Waldorf School will celebrate its 30th year of operation with the 2014-2015 school year. Our school has grown from one Kindergarten to our present size on our 75-acre wooded campus, which serves over 80 children with 20 dedicated faculty members. Our school has an Early Childhood program for children 2-6 years of age, an aftercare program and a growing Elementary program, with a warm, supportive community of families from surrounding towns in New Hampshire and Maine.
The school is located in the Mount Washington Valley, an area of incredible natural beauty. Bordering on the 700,000 acre White Mountain National Forest, the community is valued by many outdoor enthusiasts who hike, bike, ski, and rock climb. The valley supports a rural, small town lifestyle. There is also easy access to city life with Portland, Maine, 1¼ hours to the east and Boston 2½ hours south.
Our extended Waldorf community consists of an Anthroposophical study group, with members throughout the valley, a bio-dynamic farm and a Community Supported Agriculture group, choral and instrumental groups, and many local opportunities for meditation, yoga, dance, painting and drawing, drama and natural health care.
We are looking for individuals who have a desire to grow with us as we expand into an AWSNA supported grade school.
