Job Positions

First and Second Grades Waldorf Trained Class Teacher 2019-2020

Spirit Mountain School is seeking a warm, engaging First/Second grade teacher to join our faculty for the immediate 2019-2020 school year.

We maintain two mixed-age classrooms and are looking to expand as enrollment and space allow. Dedication and commitment to Waldorf education is essential in our school community. We are looking for a teacher that exhibits excellence in teaching, leadership, and has great communication skills.

The candidate we seek will preferably hold a Bachelor’s degree, but is not required. Ideally, they will also have either completed a Waldorf teacher training program or have significant experience working in a Waldorf school. Individuals who are in the process of completing their Waldorf teacher training are welcome to apply.

Founded in 2012, our small, independent, non-profit grade school utilizes anthroposophy as our foundation in understanding human development. Faculty and parents work together to guide our destiny as a school community, with an emphasis on collaboration and fraternity; we are committed to the grand mission of Waldorf Education to uphold the principles of freedom in education. We currently have specialty subjects teachers in Strings, Spanish and Mandarin languages, handwork, and gardening to help to round out the program crafted by our class teachers. We are still in our pioneering phase, with steady increases to our enrollment each year to a current total of 19.

Our school is located in Fallbrook, California, in northern inland San Diego County. It is known as “The Friendly Village” and claims the title “Avocado Capital of the World”. With a population of 33,000, Fallbrook is home to many artists, farmers and military families. Neighboring communities provide additional potential families for enrollment. There is a growing interest in biodynamic farming in our community and many local organic family farms. Native evergreen oak trees are common in the Fallbrook area, and we are surrounded by chaparral brush-land in the nearby mountains. A year-round creek runs behind our grades playground and provides many opportunities for the children to explore and experience nature throughout the seasons. We are within an hour’s drive of coastal beaches and downtown San Diego. The climate is mild-to-warm most of the year, with an average daytime high of 76 degrees.

This is an exciting opportunity to help guide and shape our small country school’s future, and to help Spirit Mountain School continue to grow and thrive!
