We are looking for:
2 Student teachers /teachers qualified or experienced in alternative child led education, such as: Free school, Waldorf, Montessori or Forest school methods, to come and be 4 hours a day 4 days a week with our children. We are looking for people enthusiastic about working with children and who are flexible and open to involving parents in projects, who are happy to live in nature and community (with no electricity and a compost toilet!)
Who we are:
We are families living off the grid in a beautiful valley in the countryside in the Sierra Nevada mountains of south Spain. 6 kilometers from Orgiva. Living a simple life close to nature away from main stream society to try get closer to ourselves. We have circa 8 children ages 2.5 – 8 years that we feel would benefit hugely from child led/alternative education here in the mountains, We are low income families who cannot afford the expensive local alternative education.
We are offering:
(On an exchange basis like woofing) Teaching experience in a beautiful place in nature, living in a straw bale house built especially for you, with your food paid for, and organic veg and fruit from our gardens, for 3 month minimum stay (first term 21st September to 21st December this year), and nice warm weather (normally!)
If this is you!
Please send us a paragraph about yourself and your beliefs and about your thoughts in the education of children, Also any qualifications or experience you may have, and ideas/plan you would have for a week with the children. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org, for all of us parents, Best wishes to you!
