We are now accepting applications for a lead teacher in our Primary (3-6) classroom for the 2022-23 school year. The position entails curriculum development throughout the year and supervision of the assistant(s). We are looking for a gentle spirit that embraces the tenets put forth by Maria Montessori, with patience and latitude that guides an academic program for our youngest students. Montessori 3-6 certification is required of all lead teachers. We accept applications from teachers currently enrolled in a Montessori certification program whose coursework and practicum may be ongoing once the contract begins at our school. We may offer assistance in training for the right candidate with an educational background and experience in a Montessori classroom.

Alpine is host to several annual festivals, events, and conferences throughout the year. Alpine Montessori will celebrate 33 years of operation in August.
