Upper Elementary Guide in New York, New York
Guidepost Montessori at Museum Mile
Upper East Side, New York City
Are you a passionate, Montessori trained teacher? Do you want to be part of a team of people working to grow the Montessori movement? Do you love Upper Elementary students and interested in founding a middle school program?
Join our team and support a growing Upper Elementary classroom! We are supporting our students’ transition to a new Middle School program and looking for a guide that is interested in third plane of development. We are sponsoring adolescent training for Montessorians looking to meaningful professional development and excited to expand their knowledge and skills.
In this role, you’ll create and lead a model classroom. Through your efforts, parents will see what’s possible for their child when authentic, high-quality Montessori is alive and well in the prepared environment. You will be provided with a full set of high-quality materials from leading manufacturers, along with a classroom budget to make your classroom unique.
We have an amazing team of Montessori Mentors who will be available to lead professional development, provide feedback, and help develop your skills even further. We offer competitive salaries, health, dental and vision insurance, as well as a generous tuition discount.
Our elementary program is truly unique: a mixed-aged Montessori community, with first through sixth graders learning alongside one another in a rich social environment. It continues the Montessori approach of practiced autonomy and self-mastery; of highly individualized lessons and extended periods of concentrated work. Within that framework, we embed a sequence of classical academic content in the humanities and the sciences. Learn more about our approach to elementary education here.
