Overview

Willow Oak Montessori is a collaborative community of professionals passionate about engaging every child in an inspirational and equitable individualized learning journey. As an individual responsible for serving students in our Exceptional Children (EC) program, the EC Teacher is an integral member of our instructional team. The EC Teacher is responsible for providing services to students with disabilities to help them thrive at Willow Oak Montessori in accordance with federal and state laws, guidelines, rules, and regulations, and in keeping with the school’s culture, mission, vision, and values. They will work in partnership with the Diverse Learning Community Team, school administration, faculty members, parents, and students to understand the needs of each student and develop strategies to meet those needs. They will be responsible for reviewing assessment data to help determine eligibility for an Individualized Education Program (IEP). In addition to consulting with and supporting the school’s teachers, the EC Teacher will also collaborate with outside agencies to provide a full continuum of services to students as specified in students’ IEPs. Excellent organizational skills and attention to details are critical to ensure accurate record-keeping.
