A strong and independent spirit, a love of adventure and the natural world, and hands, heart and mind dedicated to the ideals and practical realities of Waldorf education – if you have these attributes, Anchorage Waldorf School is seeking you to lead a strong fifth grade class into middle school. A Waldorf teaching certificate or proven equivalent experience, particularly in middle school grades, is required. Experience teaching in a mixed-age or blended-grades model is a plus.
The individual we seek will have a proven track record of successful teaching in the classroom. You will have effective classroom management skills, and a deep joy for both learning and teaching. We seek candidates who are innovative, curious, skilled, imaginative, and generous. Our teachers are entrepreneurs in the classroom: not for commerce, but for imagination, inspiration and intuition. Along with the school community, you will be building capacity in the children with whom you work.
Anchorage is nestled between the ocean and the majestic peaks of the Chugach range. The northern lights really do stream overhead, and just wait until you see the view from Flattop, with snow-covered Denali silhouetted in the distance and our sparkling city spread gently at your feet! It’s true that we love to ski, fish, climb, and bike here, but we are also artists and musicians, thinkers and pioneers. Anchorage is home to two universities, a renowned performing arts center, a symphony, an opera, local food and farmer’s markets, and several world class museums. Moose, bear, lynx, and other wild creatures wander the city.
Though small, our school embodies the Alaskan spirit that continues to shine brightly through the long, cold winters. We are a vibrant and hard-working community, with dedicated teachers, a strong festival life, and diverse community-enrichment opportunities. We currently serve children from birth through fifth grade, with a commitment to rebuilding our middle school (that’s where you come in!). We have adopted a mixed age grades model and a new governance structure to support that effort. Anchorage Waldorf School was founded in 1992, and has been serving children and families for more than 21 years.
