Grade Six Class Teacher
The rising sixth grade is currently a class of 21 students who have been held by the same class teacher since first grade. They are a well-formed, lively group of students with an active parent body. Two-thirds of these children have been at Meadowbrook since early childhood. We are seeking an experienced teacher to carry this class through middle school.
Meadowbrook Waldorf School currently has 165 students enrolled from early childhood through eighth grade. Our current special subject offerings include German, Latin, handwork, woodworking, movement, music, chorus, strings, and recorder ensemble.
By working together, the faculty, administration, faculty Core Group, the Meadowbrook Parent Association, and the Board of Trustees have created a school organization that is well balanced. We have an effective peer mentoring program and strong support for middle school teachers. Our Integrated Support Group provides guidance to teachers, children and families and has been working effectively with public school systems in our area.
