Envision yourself here… nurturing potential, touching tomorrow, inspiring the future.
Due to program and enrollment expansion, Mountaineer Montessori has an immediate opening for an additional part-time position on our growing staff of exceptional professionals for the 2021-22 school year.
We are currently inviting expressions of interest in a part-time Upper Elementary Assistant position (7:30-11:30 a.m., Monday-Friday). The Assistant will work with a Lead Teacher and serve students in one of our two Upper Elementary (grades 4-6) classrooms at our Staunton Avenue campus (former St. Agnes School) in Kanawha City.
The Montessori Elementary curriculum is an inspiring, hands-on, child-centered approach to learning and the Assistant plays a critical role in supporting students at this important stage.
This position offers a wonderful opportunity to experience Montessori and be a part of a very special community of professional educators, engaged students and supportive families that has been remaking learning for 45 years.
Founded in 1976, MMS is West Virginia’s original and largest Montessori school, serving an estimated 180 children ages toddler through 8th grade.
MMS offers an expansive academic and arts curriculum in a high fidelity Montessori environment. Our program meets and exceeds state curriculum standards, going far beyond through hands on learning, community service and engagement, and experiential learning opportunities throughout our neighborhood, state and nation. At MMS, the world is our classroom!
Now in our fifth decade, MMS is the only American Montessori Society full member school and only AMS Pathways to Continuous School Improvement school in the state. MMS makes a major investment in Montessori training and professional development each year to support our teachers and ensure the highest quality education experience for our students.
Interested candidates should email a resume and cover letter to MMS Director Jennifer Carriger at email@example.com at their very earliest convenience.
