Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School, a nursery-12th grade Waldorf school located in the beautiful Hudson Valley area in Ghent, NY is seeking a full time eurythmist whose focus will be in the high school for September 2016. We seek a candidate whose capacities include the ability to provide additional support at the high school level.

The school is part of the Hawthorne Valley Association, which supports several Anthroposophical initiatives including the farm, the Alkion Waldorf teacher-training program, Adonis Press, a Place-Based Learning Center, and an organic store, lacto-fermentation cellar, and bakery. The local area abounds with additional initiatives including a Christian Community Church and the Berkshire-Taconic Branch of the Anthroposophical Society. Our diverse student body includes the children of co-workers from four nearby Camphill communities.
Qualified applicants will have an undergraduate degree, eurythmy teacher training, and an unflagging devotion to children. Applicants must be dedicated to excellence in teaching, and be committed to developing strong working relationships with parents and colleagues.
