General information for full-time positions

To apply for any position, please email your résumé and a letter of introduction with a short autobiography to Bill Pernice, Pedagogical Administrator. We are especially interested in your Waldorf training, your experiences, and your connection to anthroposophy.

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 colleagues with a sense of humor, who will participate wholeheartedly 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. Chestnut Ridge is 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.

People of color and others underrepresented in our community are encouraged to apply.
