First Grade Class Teacher 2017-18
Primrose Hill School is seeking an experienced Waldorf trained class teacher who is eager to work with a rapidly growing grades program and to join a group of inspired faculty committed to the Waldorf Philosophy. We are currently in our fourth year of operation and offer nursery through 4th grade. For the 2017-18 school year we will offer 5th grade – adding a grade each year.
We are located in the gorgeous Hudson Valley on 7.5 acres in the Village of Rhinebeck, NY with a small farm. This unique property across from the Dutchess County Fairgrounds offers visibility and access as well as secluded forest and trails. We have horses, cows, goats, a sheep, and pig. We are working on fully integrating the farm program into the curriculum. Future plans include PreK through 12th grade, a farm store and land stewardship program.
The Hudson Valley is one of the most beautiful, scenic areas in the US. The restaurants are top notch with many farm to table options. The Rhinebeck Village Farmer’s market offers grass fed meats and organic, local produce. There are endless hikes, bike routes and recreational activities as well as a burgeoning spiritual and holistic community. We are just 80 minutes by train from New York City and are driving distance to both the Sunbridge Institute and Alkion Center, where professional development is available in the form of teacher training and Waldorf teacher conferences.
Ideal candidates will have experience as a class teacher in a Waldorf School, a commitment to the continued study of Anthroposophy, and the passion to be a part of a team of faculty and parents who are dedicated to growing the community and the school. Musicality is a plus.
We offer a competitive salary based on experience as well as a growing benefits package.
Please email us with a letter of intent, resume, three references and a one to two page bio to Laurie Schmolz: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you!
