At the Waldorf School of Bend, education is a powerful vehicle for social change. Thus, core academic subjects are taught to ignite the imagination of students and teachers in order to help foster pragmatic and inspired solutions to the ever-growing challenges of our time. The rigorous academic curriculum allows students to move forward with a sense of strong social consciousness, strong academic skills and a vibrant individuality to create their own futures. A strong reverence for nature and the desire to nurture the earth are primary foundations on which school practices are based.

We are an AWSNA Associate school, who is experiencing energetic and healthy growth in beautiful Bend, Oregon. As a WECAN Developing member school, we operate an Early Childhood Program (Pre-K & Kindergarten classes) serving children ages 3-6, a stand-alone Grades program (1st – 6th) and blended Jr. High program (7th & 8th). We are unique in that we operate a Jr. High to help students prepare for high school outside of Waldorf as currently there are no Waldorf high school options in Central Oregon.

Due to our current growth, we are seeking an energetic and experienced Grades Lead Teacher.  Applicants should embody a creative, innovative and collaborative demeanor, and be dedicated to fostering a diverse and dynamic school community.  Candidates should also possess the wisdom of a loving authority and the pioneering spirit to become a foundational member of our esteemed faculty.  Candidates must have completed their Waldorf Grades Teacher Certification, ideally have a minimum of 3 year’s classroom experience and possess a Bachelor degree in a related educational field. Cover letters, biographies and resumes are currently being accepted through Friday, March 3rd 2017.  Chosen applicants will be contacted after Monday, March 6th 2017 to begin interview process.  Come explore life and community in beautiful Bend, Oregon!
