Montessori Certified Upper Elementary Guide
City Garden Montessori School in St. Louis, Missouri is seeking a Montessori-certified Upper Elementary Guide. Must have, or be able to obtain, state certification in Elementary Education.
City Garden is the only Montessori charter school in Missouri, and we are one of the highest-performing charter schools in the state. We are seeking talented individuals to join our team who possess passion and determination to implement the Montessori approach to educating children in a diverse, urban environment.
As we grow, we continue to seek individuals to join us who share our vision for holistic, Montessori education, rooted in social justice.
Our work is a calling. We are implementing a very unique, specialized approach to education. City Garden is also much more than a school--we have a deep commitment to doing "whatever it takes" for our kids and families, and we educate our children in the context of an active, vibrant, diverse community.
Our work requires being coachable, an ongoing desire to learn and a sense of egoless-ness.
Our work is not easy. Our guides (teachers) individualize curriculum for every student, and have mixed age groupings. They are constantly aligning Montessori with the Common Core, and they strive to implement the Montessori approach with fidelity while meeting the requirements of teaching in a public school.
Our work requires flexibility, independence and initiative. We are a young school; things change fast, and we are still developing programs, systems and structures.
Our work is profoundly rewarding!!! Our children love to come to school. They are joyful, funny and engaged, and they love all of the adults at City Garden. We have an incredible community of support beyond our walls, which includes neighborhood residents, other organizations, businesses, foundations, corporations and lots of individuals who believe in us and our mission.
We believe that we are building a better world, by nurturing and guiding our children and building community.
Do you have what it takes to become one of us?
Only those extraordinary educators with Montessori Certification at the Upper Elementary level are asked to send your resume today.
