About the Candidate We Seek

Our ideal woodworking teacher candidate is familiar with and has an interest in Waldorf education.  Our faculty is seeking a like-minded colleague who is committed to collegial collaboration, self-development, and excellence in teaching.

About the Woodworking Position

Explorations in Woodworking are an integral part of the entire school day.  By fifth grade, students have discovered the dexterity and willpower necessary to begin working weekly on woodworking projects. Woodwork class begins with carving simple objects like eggs and spoons out of softer hardwoods. After learning the basics of wood carving, students move on to more intricate projects involving the assembly of multiple parts and the use of a variety of hand tools. Recent projects in the upper grades have included wooden swords, hatchet handles and the capstone eighth grade project, the three-legged stool.
