Grades Teacher

Swallowtail Waldorf School & Farm is accepting applications for a full time Grades Teacher. We expect a group of about 20 eager students in Grade 1 this fall, most coming from our early childhood program. 

The ideal candidate will have teaching experience, earned a Bachelor's Degree and Waldorf Teacher Training Certificate, is dedicated to the study of Anthroposophy and self-development, and is excited about collegial collaboration. 

About us:
In 1995 Swallowtail School was founded based on heartfelt environmental education and Waldorf principles which have carried us to the dynamic learning atmosphere we are proud of today. The past few years have yielded significant growth in our community, enabling program offerings from Parent Child Classes and a full Early Childhood Program to Grade Eight, with an average class size of 16. Our main campus is located in northwest Oregon in the city of Cornelius. Fifteen minutes away, our farm campus is located on 26 acres with a farmhouse and barn, a sweeping expanse of productive farmland, woodlands, biodynamic gardens, outbuildings and a meandering creek. The land provides an outdoor classroom for all of our students, and much of the curriculum is interwoven with farm activity involving anything from simple chores and harvesting, to erecting temporary shelters and caring for livestock. Swallowtail Farm is held deeply in the hearts of our community and most of our seasonal festivals are celebrated here.

Swallowtail School is AWSNA and WECAN recognized.

In addition to the rural and suburban towns surrounding Swallowtail, a 30 minute drive will find you in the bustling metropolis of downtown Portland. Head another hour east and the beautiful Cascade Mountains await with skiing, hiking, and other outdoor wonders. A short hour to the west you will find the picturesque Oregon coast, an equally enchanting natural environment.
