Hilltop Montessori School is looking for a Physical Education Teacher/Athletic Director. This is a part-time position (20 hours/week) working with students ages 6-14 years old.
The physical education program at Hilltop Montessori School is a holistic program offered to students from Pre-school through 8th grade. It is a balance between developing individual skills and learning to work as part of a team/group.

The physical education teacher must be able to work with a wide variety of ages and talents and be able to balance high expectations with kindness and humor.
The PE teacher must have an understanding of the physical developmental stages of pre-school-middle school age children and will implement an appropriate curriculum for each age group. The PE teacher will keep a record of the progress of each student and communicate problems to the classroom teachers. In addition student evaluations are required twice a year.
Additional responsibilities include after-school coaching of soccer, basketball, and ultimate Frisbee; scheduling team games afterschool with other schools, and organizing and supervising the winter sports program (including transportation and chaperones for ice skating, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiing and snowboarding).
Successful candidates will have strong organizational skills, good communication skills, and a natural ability to connect with children of different ages and abilities. We also ask that candidates have experience with equity, anti-bias, and teaching in an equitable and culturally affirming way and have experience working with children having a wide range of social, emotional, and behavioral experiences.
