Upper Elementary Teacher 2015-16

We are planning to re-open our Upper Elementary program in August 2015, after a five year hiatus.

We expect the Upper Elementary to have less than five students enrolled the first year with enrollment reaching double digits by its third year. In addition to the traditional classroom work of a Montessori Upper Elementary, students participate in service work in our community, go on a four-day field trip, an annual two-day camp out, and produce a school play. The Lead Teacher is largely responsible for these extracurricular activities with a limited amount of help from the Elementary assistant and parent volunteers. The Elementary Assistant will act as the assistant to both elementary classrooms during the next two years of low enrollment.

For the full job description, please send your resumé and cover letter to the Head of School:
