Employment at Whidbey Island Waldorf School

Grades Teacher Sought for 2019-20   

Whidbey Island Waldorf School is seeking a full-time grades teacher to join our school.  We have a combined class, team teaching and looping model, so we are seeking someone who can fit into the following team:

  • Grades 4-5

The ideal candidate will be a fully-trained Waldorf teacher. Waldorf teaching experience is greatly desired but not required, depending upon the team. We seek a confident, warm, community-minded individual with a deep appreciation for the Waldorf approach to education and its anthroposophical foundations.

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 122 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, which are stewarded by the Whidbey Institute and are 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.
