About this job

About the Class -

Our sweet fourth graders are waiting for a Class Teacher who can guide them and grow alongside them for the next several years. They are hoping for a warm teacher who enjoys singing, is strong in academics but is also artistic, and who is ready to explore the exciting curriculum of the 4th - 8th grade years with them. This is a well-balanced class with bright, engaged young minds, lots of playful energy, and so much ardent sweetness. They are a group of eager students who love art and playing outdoors. Many of these students have been together since first grade, and the feeling that they have become a class family is immediately noticeable in their classroom. This is a keen bunch of children, with joy and tenacity that we hope their new teacher will nourish throughout the years!

About Us -

Peace Valley is a young K-8 charter school located in the growing, bustling city of Boise, Idaho. Boise is a beautiful medium-sized city with so much to offer. Our food scene rivals that of Portland, our arts community is thriving and dynamic, and we have rugged beauty for our backyard - hiking, fishing, snowsports, kayaking, mountain biking, boating, and more are all available just a short drive from town.

As the first Waldorf school in our area, we have the privilege to grow alongside our community and bring this wonderful form of education to families who would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience it. Our school culture is collaborative, vibrant, and growing to fill the needs of our unique community in Boise. We are strongly led by the Waldorf principles, and by our shared experiences and intuitions as educators. We are lucky to have an active parent body of dedicated folks who regularly volunteer at our school and are passionate about being involved in their children's education in a real way.

As a school, we aim to bring forth healthy, confident, free-thinking, and self-directed children who are passionately engaged with education. We want to empower all of our students to contribute responsibly to the world and to appreciate the importance of peace, respect, and compassion.

Classroom teachers will loop with their class from 1st - 8th grades, with an option of participating in either a lower grades loop from 1st through 4th grade or an upper grades loop from 5th through 8th grade.
