The New Village School
Urgently Seeking Full and Part Time Class Teachers for Current School Year and Next- Updated 11/19/20
The New Village School has pioneered a deconstruction of the class teaching position along with a strong village quality where all the children meet at the beginning and end of each day with the entire teaching team… This approach is possible because the school keeps its numbers small. The advantages are that all the teachers consider themselves equally responsible for all the children and that every subject is given equal consideration, in a true honoring of the multiple intelligences we are educating. We especially cherish individuals who are well traveled, know multiple languages and are comfortable teaching outdoors, taking students out in nature and traveling. Our teachers need to be well rounded human beings with many talents and passions, and also flexible and able to work with different ages at the same time. The school defines itself as strongly inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s educational philosophy and its curriculum.
Experienced teachers or teachers in training are welcome to apply. Internship available through the spring. Please email your resume to Lalla Carini at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.

Seeking Metal Arts Teacher- Updated 10/05/20
We are looking for a teacher to teach Metal Arts to a group of 13 students in January (hopefully taught partially in-person by then).

The days/times are Monday mornings, 10:15-11:30 and Friday afternoons, 1:30-3:20. The hourly rate is $90.00 per lesson, which includes prep time and writing a very short grade evaluation at the end of the class.
The students would mostly like to create jewelry—setting stones for rings, designing pendants, earrings, or perhaps letter openers, small boxes or candle holders. They have all had soldering experience. This is an elective class and they are motivated. We are looking for a teacher who can inspire beautiful quality work.
