California: Waldorf School of the Peninsula seeks Gardening Teacher

24 Mar

are seeking a full time Gardening Teacher for the 2011/2012 school year. The qualified candidate must have experience and knowledge of Bio-dynamic gardening, as well as experience working with elementary age students. Candidates should have an interest in Waldorf education and a commitment to working in an environment that fosters the education of the whole human being.

We welcome inquiries from experienced Waldorf trained teachers with a bachelor’s degree who will help envision growing our new campus and garden which will hold our Middle and High School students. This creative process will involve teachers who are able to bring the heart of anthroposophy to our students and draw out those qualities and capacities in them.

Our Waldorf community is committed to salaries that allow enjoyment of this area’s outstanding access to museums, symphonies, and intellectually stimulating venues, as well as hundreds of square miles of open space, trails, and nature preserves, that are accessible year round thanks to our mild climate.

The Waldorf School of the Peninsula (Nursery – Grade 12) is celebrating its 27th year in education with a lovely permanent site in the hills of Los Altos, California. We are a community of 40 full and part time faculty and staff and 280 students. Our school is an increasingly international community, and our unique tuition adjustment program encourages economic diversity.

The San Francisco Peninsula offers the natural pleasures of redwood forests, mountain ranges, and seashores in a mild year-round climate. The area has a strong cultural emphasis, with internationally recognized colleges and universities.

We are one of five well-established Waldorf schools in the area. This network offers many opportunities along with a rich calendar of events, workshops, and speakers. Our school has an outstanding community education program and serves as a teacher-training site for Rudolf Steiner College.

Our school is a full member of and accredited by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America. The school is also fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
