AMI Trained Elementary Guide
The Del Ray Montessori School (DRMS), a thriving community Montessori school located in the quaint Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, is seeking an exceptional AMI-trained elementary guide for the 2013 – 2014 school year. This guide will lead a small, newly formed class of approximately 12 children between the ages of 6 – 8. All children have had Primary Montessori experience and have established a vibrant lower elementary community at our school. We are a short walk to the Braddock Road Metro and have the opportunity to take advantage of many “going out” activities in Washington DC and throughout the Northern Virginia area. This is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic, ambitious guide who is interested in growing professionally with this class and within this wonderful school community!
The Del Ray Montessori School is an independent, non-profit school conveniently located just miles from the DC metropolitan area. The school is currently in its second year and houses one primary and one lower elementary classroom with plans to open a second primary classroom this Fall. We offer competitive salaries, health coverage, retirement benefits, and several professional development opportunities sponsored by the school throughout the year, including events offered through: WMI (Washington Montessori Institute), NAMTA, and the annual AMI Refresher Course.
Successful candidates will:
• Desire to work in a community guided by respect for children, families and staff
• Embody the values of the Montessori philosophy at all times; and
• Display a strong team work ethic and sense of professionalism.
Resumes and letters of interest should be sent to:
