6th Grade Class Teacher Beginning August 2016

The Austin Waldorf School is seeking a sixth grade class teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. Our fifth grade class teacher will be retiring after almost 30 years of service. Just past the middle of her third full cycle, she will be leaving a well-formed, robust class of twenty-eight girls and boys. We are looking for an individual deeply committed to the ideals of Waldorf Education. In addition to a Bachelor’s Degree and Waldorf Training, this position requires excellent organizational skills, a high level of personal initiative, the desire and ability to work collaboratively with other faculty members in support of students, and the warmth and flexibility to work with students with a wide range of ability.

HOW TO APPLY:

Please submit a letter of interest, resume, employment application (see pdf links below), and contact information for a minimum of three professional references in one document via email to awsrecruitment@austinwaldorf.org

High School Math Teacher

This is a unique opportunity for a dynamic mathematics teacher to build on and lead a well-established math department at the Austin Waldorf School. The High School is now approaching its 20th year, and intends to expand the math department to be able to serve a wider spectrum of student abilities.             

As the ideal candidate, you will have a Masters or PhD degree (though a bachelor’s degree might be considered), substantial teaching experience at the high school level, and familiarity with Waldorf teaching methods. Practical experience in the field would be a valuable asset, particularly in the application of geometry (e.g. design). 

Along with teaching a full-time complement of math courses, you will lead the department in maintaining and developing the math curriculum (including selecting textbooks and/or creating curricular materials) while monitoring the progress of all math classes. Working with colleagues to inspire enthusiasm and dedication, you will coordinate the scheduling of the math teachers as well as their professional development so as to create a math department of national reputation.

The math curriculum at AWS is taught in a combination of 3-4-week-long “main lessons” and ongoing math skills classes.  The curriculum integrates the study of algebra, geometry, logic, combinatorics, trigonometry, and the other traditional high school math topics into a complete three-year course of study that all our students pursue. The seniors then study either calculus or projective geometry and business math, depending on their individual inclinations.

The Austin Waldorf School has a strong faculty that is committed to bringing the richness of a Waldorf education to central Texas, and we encourage and strive to support the ongoing professional self-development of all our teachers. An active mentoring program draws on teachers at this and other Waldorf schools.

Teachers at the Austin Waldorf School attend scheduled full faculty, section, and department meetings and eventually assume greater school-wide responsibilities such as class advising and committee responsibilities.  The hours during the school day outside of those in the classroom are available for class preparation, grading, report writing, meeting with students and parents as needed, as well as curriculum development and deepening the study of Waldorf pedagogy.

AWS is an established school that is financially strong with stable enrollment of nearly 400 students K-12. A recent governance change has the school poised for renewal and transition into our next evolution including plans for new facilities, strengthening the support for our faculty and further enriching our program offerings. We are fully accredited with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America and the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest.

Our beautiful 19-acre campus is situated in the hills outside the Austin city limits. It consists of three kindergartens, eight grade school classrooms, a library, a handwork room, a seven-classroom high school including state-of-the-art science and computer labs, a gymnasium, a eurythmy hall, two art studios, a performing arts center with a 350 seat auditorium and two rehearsal rooms, a school store, gardens and three playgrounds.

Austin is a family-oriented progressive city located in the heart of the Hill Country in central Texas. Many of our teachers own homes near the campus. It is a region of rich natural beauty, surrounded by cedar and live-oak trees and filled with creeks, rivers, and a chain of highland lakes. Austin is the state capital and home of the University of Texas, which offers a myriad of cultural and recreational events. Although we serve the Austin community, our location on the edge of town makes it possible to live in a country setting.

The Novalis Branch of the Anthroposophical Society of Texas sponsors study groups, festivals and conferences. We are also fortunate to have a professional Eurythmy ensemble in Austin.
