Once we receive your application, we will reply and arrange for an interview. Waldorf teachers complete Waldorf Teacher Training as well as their undergraduate degrees. Our substitute teachers haven’t all completed Waldorf Teaching Training but they are educators who have an explicit interest in Waldorf education. Please see www.whywaldorfworks.org to learn more about Waldorf education and to learn about Waldorf Teacher education.
There are five categories of Waldorf Teachers: Early Childhood Specialists, Class Teachers, Learning Support Specialists, Subject Specialists and High School Specialists. Our Subject Specialist teachers lead the programs of studies in French, Music, Handwork, Woodwork, Games and Sports and Eurythmy. Class Teachers loop with their classes from year to year and teach the core academic subjects. All of our teachers work out of the pedagogical foundations of Waldorf education.
The Vancouver Waldorf School encompasses three campuses: the Early Childhood Center and Grades School Campus are located at 2725 St. Christopher’s Road in North Vancouver. The High School is located at 307-3255 Edgemont Boulevard in North Vancouver.
