Montessori Elementary Teachers
We are the first public charter Montessori school in Oakland, California, one of the most beautiful and diverse cities in the country. We are coming to the end of our first year, and we need passionate and committed teachers to join Urban Montessori as we are growing.
We have enjoyed our first K-2 school year with 183 families that reflect the diversity of the county: we are 34% Hispanic/Latino, 33% White, 25% African American, 16% Multiracial, and 6% Asian & Pacific Islander. Just under 40% of our families qualify for Free & Reduced Lunch and many families speak multiple languages. We will grow by adding one grade each year, eventually serving 650 families from preschool through 8th grade.
Our community is passionate about cross-cultural collaboration, inclusiveness, innovation, and respect. We seek to cultivate the unique learning style and worldview of each and every one of our children by way of Montessori Academics, Arts Integration, and Design Thinking -- the interlocking tenets of our charter. We want to prepare our children for a dynamic future driven by global discourse. We value problem-solving, diversity, and critical thinking over memorization, uniformity, and rewards-based learning.
We are seeking Montessori elementary teachers who want to be part of a founding team committed to bringing Montessori to the public, to demonstrating the power of the Montessori approach, design thinking and the arts in delivering 21st learning and preparation for ALL children. Sound compelling? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a cover letter and resume.
