Physics/Math Teacher for 2016-17 (FT)
The position includes physics blocks in all four grades, a full-year physics elective class, and mathematics teaching in the high school.
Green Meadow Waldorf School, a progressive independent school located 40 minutes north of New York City, seeks a high school physics teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. The high school science curriculum is strongly experiential and thus lab-based. Many lessons will be in intensive morning blocks that last for three to four weeks. Our high school teachers also support, and sometimes teach, in the middle school math and science program.
The ideal candidate will have experience teaching physics at the 8th-12th grade levels and an interest in interdisciplinary, developmentally-based education. We are looking for a colleague who will participate wholeheartedly in the life of the school, works collaboratively, genuinely enjoys teaching adolescents, has a passion for the subject, and is equipped with a good sense of humor. Some previous experience of Waldorf pedagogy will be an advantage.
To apply for any position listed above, please email your resume and a letter of introduction with a short autobiography to Bill Pernice, Pedagogical Administrator (email@example.com). We are especially interested in your Waldorf training, your experience, and your connection to anthroposophy.
General information for applicants for full-time positions:
Our school's approach is oriented toward providing a setting in which students can develop into independent individuals in a holistic way. We offer a competitive salary and benefits, generous retirement and health insurance contributions, and access to subsidized housing.
Applicants should have an interest in and previous understanding of Waldorf pedagogy and its background in anthroposophy. (Waldorf certification is required for many positions.) We are looking for flexible, enthusiastic, professional colleagues with a sense of humor, who will participate whole-heartedly in the life of the school. Our school encourages professional development through mentoring by master teachers and support for attending outside conferences and courses.
The successful applicant will be joining a vibrant faculty, and be able to partake of the benefits of an established anthroposophical community in suburban New York, about 20 miles from the cultural offerings and diversity of NYC and close to large state parks. Our school, now in its sixties, contains an enlivening mix of seasoned, maturing, and newer teachers. The overall enrollment of our school is around 390 students. Our school is accredited by AWSNA and NYSAIS.
