LEAP International Montessori School, LLC

LEAP International Montessori School, LLC is growing and searching for a warm and compassionate, Primary trained Montessori teacher to start a new classroom of 16 with an assistant.  The ideal candidate will be Montessori trained and enjoy working in an indoor and outdoor environment.  This person would consider themselves to be a team player with a pleasant personality; highly detail oriented, leads a “clean” life-style, drug-free, enjoys writing, is punctual, flexible, has the legal ability to work in the United States, and must have a clean driving record.    

Because the school is a 5-star accredited school with NM FOCUS, and is a NM PreK Site, the candidate must be willing to take all required state classes or be able show proof the classes are completed.  For the right candidate, we may also be interested in hiring someone (who already possesses a bachelor’s degree) and who would be interested in pursuing Montessori Training and New Mexico State Teacher Certification, to be a Lead, Montessori teacher for our growing school.

LEAP is an authentic Montessori School, in its 10th year.  We currently serve children 3 to 12 years old and we are growing!   We are a warm community Montessori school intent on serving our children and community with kindness, compassion, and a commitment to authentic Montessori pedagogy.  We offer a competitive salary ($50,000-70,000 depending on education and experience), benefits, and the opportunity to develop with a growing school and program.   Our school also qualifies as a working site for the ECECD scholarship program and we fully support this program and our own staff’s continuing education goals.  This is truly an ideal position for a newly trained (or experienced) teacher who wants to make their classroom their own.
