Walden is Hiring!

Lower Group (TK-K) Teacher / Administrator (Berkeley, California)

Walden Center and School seeks a dynamic Lower Group Teacher to join our teaching collective in the fall of 2024. If you have a vision of building a close-knit community, of working with kids, parents, and a small committed team of educators, this may be the engaging, invigorating, satisfying job you are looking for. 

Walden Center and School has been a leader in progressive elementary education and collective administration for over 65 years. Walden is an independent K-6 school where drama, music, language, and art sit alongside traditional academic subjects as our core curriculum. At Walden, we believe that children learn best when their academic, emotional, physical, and social needs are addressed, and families are an integral part of our community. Teachers take an individualized approach in designing their curricula in order to meet each child where they are developmentally.

We are passionate about working with the diversity of our current community and strive to support an environment that feels inclusive and intentional.
