Our Teachers

Teaching in a Steiner-Waldorf school is a calling and not just a job. Our teachers come from all walks of life, age groups and backgrounds and may or may not have prior teaching experience, but surely have some important traits – a love for children, a passion for teaching as a calling and a very creative and enthusiastic bent of mind in addition to a deep, spiritual quest. Training in Waldorf methodology is provided through in-house mentorship and also through external mentors, training sessions & workshops.

Teachers at Bangalore Steiner School have shared values of aspiring towards building an equitable and non-hierarchical manner of working, emphasis on professional development, being nurtured by nature in their everyday life and growing a community with a common objective.

We Are Recruiting

Bangalore Steiner School is seeking passionate individuals to teach the Cambridge Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Global Perspectives and Hindi curriculum at the Grade 9 level and upwards. We are also seeking teachers for Art, Sculpture, Wood & Metal Works and Music.

We invite individuals who are seeking to find beauty in its abstractions as well as a practical relevance in the world in a subject of their expertise, who are deeply committed to the cause of adolescents, empowering them to connect with and create their own communities and share their own individual expression to manifest change in the world. We strive for freedom so that we can nurture the same in children.

Our students have engaged with the same Class Teacher so far (from Grade 1 to 8) where they explored the Sciences, Arts and Humanities in an integrated manner in keeping with the spirit of Waldorf education.

They are now stepping forth into a deeper engagement with the world that needs critical thinking faculties and are served best by a band of passionate adults with their own insights into the world
