Heartwood is seeking teachers to help support our growing programs, both class teachers for the campus centered programs that follow a classic public Waldorf approach and CST teachers to support our independent home school students. Candidates must have a California teaching credential, or be in the process of attaining one.  Candidates must have teaching experience and be familiar with Waldorf and/or Whole Child educational approaches. If working in the Classic Public Waldorf stream, the ideal candidate will have completed a Waldorf teacher training program.  Candidates should have an enthusiasm for bringing an engaging, artistic approach to teaching, as well as, an interest in ongoing professional development.

About us:
We are a home-grown, grass-roots, newly chartered independent study charter school.  We believe that every family should have the ability to choose their child’s education and we have worked diligently to create a school that supports that belief.  We also believe that community creates a school, which is why we are proud to offer a local alternative to the large independent study charter schools.

We are a teacher led, community created independent study charter.  We are seeking like-minded teachers to join our community and to help us empower homeschool families to choose the education that best fits their whole child.  We are creating a thriving local Independent Study Program that embraces a large community of homeschoolers, providing them with a responsive local team of credentialed teachers, vendors, and administrators.  Our hope is to demonstrate the reasons that charters were created, not as a business enterprise, but to provide a local alternative that serves and supports communities of learners who are making a different educational choice.

Application Deadline: Open until we have sufficient teachers to meet the needs of our growing student body.

To Apply: please send the following to h[email protected]

– Resume
– Three contactable references: email address and phone number

We will only review completed applications
