We are a Waldorf community with a harmonious, stable, and experienced faculty, a supportive Board of Trustees, and an engaged parent body. Alabama Waldorf School (nursery through 8th grade) is celebrating our 35th year. We are well established in the Birmingham, AL area, and are the only fully accredited Waldorf School in Alabama. Our school is faculty held, meaning all decisions are made under the direction of faculty consensus vote. We have just around 125 students, learning in a successful multi-age classroom model in both preschool and grades programs, which allows teachers to deeply nurture the whole child and develop strong, meaningful relationships with students, their parents/guardians, and family members.
Alabama Waldorf School established its curriculum utilizing the traditional Waldorf philosophy as defined by scientist, philosopher and artist Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Waldorf education evolved from Steiner’s thorough understanding of human development and addresses the needs of children as they move through development on every level: physical, mental, and emotional. The mission of Alabama Waldorf School is to cultivate healthy, confident, compassionate learners who excel academically, socially, and civically. Our faculty and staff are guided by reverence for the developing child, courage for the truth, and the ability to continue to learn from one another.
We are seeking colleagues who will bring a passion for teaching and an enthusiastic commitment to join this community. Candidates must be committed to caring for and educating children in a lively and engaging way, recognizing that not all children learn in the same style.
