Walden is Hiring…

K-6 Music Teacher and Administrator

We are seeking a dynamic, enthusiastic music teacher who has experience with whole-child education encompassing academic, social, emotional, and physical development, and who loves teaching children. If you have a vision of building a close-knit community, of working with kids, parents, and a small committed team of teachers, this may be the engaging, invigorating, satisfying job you are looking for.

Walden Center and School is a leader in progressive elementary education and collective administration. Our school has a rich history of teaching creative minds and alternative thinkers over the last 60 years, with a strong commitment to a fully-integrated arts curriculum. All of our students have Spanish, Music, Drama, and Visual Art with specialists twice weekly. Here you’ll find child-centered education at its best. Our approach to teaching makes learning a multisensory, joyful, and lasting experience. We cultivate a diverse community of learners, families, and teachers to create a secure and textured learning environment. Walden students love to go to school. We are a school run by a collective. Decision-making is consensus-based. We are a small school with big ideas and a big heart where children love to learn and teachers love to teach.

In addition to classroom teaching, the music teacher will become part of our teaching collective. This means helping to run our school by way of weekly staff meetings, committee work, and other administrative duties with a focus on process as well as performance.
