Long term this could grow into a full-time middle school teaching position.  Interest in teaching math and science is particularly helpful.

Our School and Its Unique Island Location
Our school’s rich Waldorf tradition, high caliber teachers, engaged parent body and beautiful island location all combine to make us a “destination” school.  Founded in 1985, the Whidbey Island Waldorf School (currently 125 students: nursery through 8th grade) is located on the south end of Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound within the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains.  Our school’s buildings are set amidst 100 acres of ecological trust forestlands where our classes often walk and study.  Our island location offers a peaceful, family-oriented atmosphere with beaches, trails and easy access to several national forests. South Whidbey has a rich and diverse arts community and is only one hour from the bustling cultural life and opportunities of downtown Seattle. For more information, visit wiws.org.
