Lead Nursery Teacher / Director

Sierra Waldorf School is seeking a Lead Fully Qualified Nursery Teacher for the fall of 2015. A strong parent body, an inspired faculty, and a dedicated administration are searching for an enthusiastic educator to join our Early Childhood Program.

Our school rests in the Rawhide Valley, a rural community in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, near the towns of Sonora and Jamestown. Tuolumne County is a wilderness paradise with most of Yosemite National Park within its borders. Hiking, skiing, rock climbing, biking, and sightseeing opportunities abound. Quaint downtown Sonora hosts art galleries, live theatre, and a weekly Farmers’ Market.

Our school is in its 26th year. We have 160 students in parent tot, nursery, kindergarten, and grades 1-8. We are fortunate to be blessed with a strong administration which possesses clear goals for our future. Our faculty is an extremely dedicated group of teachers, many of whom have graduated their own families from our school. The support we provide for each other carries us through challenging times as teachers, parents, and human beings. We are committed to working out of anthroposophy and the indications of Rudolf Steiner, as well as working with consensus.

We seek an experienced Waldorf teacher or a new teacher with Waldorf training.  We are currently a state licensed program and hope to find an individual who has the required credentials to perform as the Program Director/Lead Teacher. We are open to individuals with some units and a willingness to obtain the necessary credentials.  Early childhood experience required, parent/child experience preferred.
