We are a group of 3 like minded, loving families (may be up to 5 families) creating a COVID-19 sensitive homeschool pod for our children ages 3 to 5 years old. We are looking for an experienced educator to serve as our Primary Guide / Head Teacher. Ideal candidates will have a true love and respect for young children and their enormous capabilities, with an interest and excitement toward developing a “microschool” community that brings the best of all they have gathered from their professional experiences in the Montessori classroom. We would like to create an educational environment for our children that is consistent with the Montessori programs the children attended previously – inspired by self directed, inquiry-driven, experiential learning.
Our Teacher will provide daily care and supervision of the children, create daily lesson plans and activity schedules, and work directly with our engaged and caring community of families on health, administration, and educational and emotional development of the children in their care. We have a wonderful teacher’s assistant in mind to support the Head Teacher.
