Employment Opportunities


Hanging out cThank you for your interest in Mountaineer Montessori School.

Due to our planned expansion and growth, Mountaineer Montessori School is accepting resumes for positions in our Primary, Elementary and Middle School programs. MMS has been offering an authentic quality Montessori education for almost 40 years.  Our school is the longest running Montessori program in the entire state, serving children 3-14 year olds.

 Lead Guides must have a bachelor’s degree and Montessori certification (AMS or AMI). Experience in the classroom is strongly preferred. Our Lead Teachers all have full-time Assistants and enjoy class sizes that average 22 students. Our teachers enjoy a rare level of trust and support from a parent community who loves our school. We are seeking teachers who have a true appreciation of and faith in the Montessori method and a deep love and respect for the child.

 Assistant Teachers must also have a bachelor’s degree and experience in the classroom. We are particularly interested in assistant teachers who may be interested in becoming Montessori certified. Assistant Teachers enjoy a respectful relationship with Lead Teachers and are given opportunities for professional development.


MMS is located in the charming city of Charleston, West Virginia – the state capital and home to a thriving arts scene. Surrounded on all sides by beautiful hills and mountains, we are a mecca for the outdoorsman. Charlestonians will welcome you with open arms.
