High School Part-Time Faculty and Administrative Openings

Tamarack Waldorf School is expanding into the 9th grade this fall, and adding one high school grade each subsequent year.

The Tamarack High School Faculty Recruitment Committee is actively seeking faculty to begin this exciting journey with its pioneering class of ninth graders (anticipated as a class of 25-30) and its wide array of experienced, dynamic teaching colleagues. Resumes are currently being accepted for the following openings:

World Language: Preference for Spanish, but we would consider any language brought by a strong candidate.  Ideally the teacher is connected to a native-speaking community in Milwaukee for immersion experience. The expectation is that the teacher will bring not only language but also culture, including culinary and festival activities.

Choral Music: Seeking a choral director to grow with our school, from up to 35 choral participants in our first year… to 130 or more in our fourth year.

Movement/Athletics: Especially interested in instructors with skills, experience and credentials teaching gymnastics and circus arts; spatial dynamics; fitness and strength training; nonviolent martial arts; bodily/spatial awareness and self-defense; a wide range of different sports; teen sexual health and alcohol/drug awareness (most likely with particular training in these fields).

Experience teaching in a Waldorf setting, or at minimum interest in and experience of Waldorf Education, are highly desired. A bachelor’s degree is required. An applicant could combine any of the above job offerings. All positions have the opportunity to grow as the High School expands.

Interested candidates are asked to submit a resume, letter of intention including a brief relevant biography, as well as contact information for three teaching-related references to twhspersonnel@tamarackwaldorf.org.

Resumes will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Positions will remain open until filled.

Tamarack Waldorf School is a private Waldorf school established in 1996 as an urban school embracing diversity in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We offer a complete curriculum for students from pre-school and kindergarten through ninth grade. Tamarack welcomes students and families of all races, religions and cultures. Because we believe Waldorf education should be within the reach of all, regardless of income, we participate in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP) in addition to our own tuition assistance program. Tamarack faculty and students are fortunate to be within walking distance of many nature settings in an urban landscape, such as the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan. The Brady Street area is a dynamic community with much to offer.
