Berkeley Rose Waldorf School is seeking volunteer assistant teachers for its lunch, handwork, and games programs.
Ideally, assistants are trained or actively pursuing certification in Waldorf education, and are open to learning from Rudolf Steiner’s indications. Assistants are encouraged to access guidance from experienced teachers, as part of their education. With time, assistant teachers substitute in classes in which they feel confident.
We hope to find volunteer assistant teachers who:
• have knowledge of or training in Waldorf schools / anthroposophy
• are experienced with elementary-aged children
• have an ability to self-reflect and collaborate with colleagues
• are reliable and consistent
