Blossoms Teacher 2019-20

Summerfield Waldorf School and Farm seeks a Blossoms Teacher, two mornings per week, five hours/morning plus additional time devoted to outreach and parent work, averaging 12 hours/week total. We are looking for an experienced Waldorf early childhood teacher with demonstrated strength in working with young children and their parents. Hourly position; pay proportional with experience. Join a thriving early childhood faculty in Summerfield's early childhood village.

The Blossoms classes at Summerfield are designed to help young children (2 1/2 - 3 years of age) mature socially while meeting their changing needs as they transition into the preschool years. Parents or caregivers accompany their children for the first few sessions of the school year; then, as the children become more comfortable and confident in their surroundings, adults transition out of the classroom setting. The children's day follows a natural rhythm of circle time, indoor play, organic snack and outdoor activity. This class provides young children with a healthy dose of socialization and enrichment.

Please email your letter of intention and resume to Carrie Wooldridge, Human Resources Coordinator at carrie [at] summerfieldwaldorf.org. Please also include three professional references (with phone numbers), at least two of whom have seen you teach.
