Want to learn about the most inspiring and intuitive methodology for teaching? Are you a Renaissance person, with interests in many things? A jack/jill of all trades and master of none? Do you want to make a difference in the future of the world? We are looking for a Full-Time Elementary Teacher to join our staff in the fall for a 9.7 month contract (year-round available also).
The Montessori Elementary teacher teaches to the students’ strengths while challenging their weaknesses. In Montessori, the Elementary classroom encompasses grades 1 – 6, so the teacher needs to be a generalist. He/she must individualize instruction per child, comprehending each child’s developmental plane. As the guide, you may have to teach yourself how to use specific Montessori materials to better convey individual lessons to the
children. The teacher will tend to the emotional, social, cognitive, and spiritual needs of each child in the classroom, all the while creating a welcoming, homey and inviting classroom space.
You will be working in our Elementary classroom with children ages 6 to 11 years with approximately 10 children. Your work hours will be 8 am to 3 pm, but could change depending on needs of the school. Additional or fewer work hours are negotiable.
As a small, private school with a close-knit staff/child/parent community, our goal is to create a living environment where children, our hope for the future, can thrive. We follow Montessori principles and are more than happy to train you in this methodology. Yadkin Path is a family so we are looking for individuals who are interested in staying with us long-term.
