The Del Ray Montessori School (DRMS), located just outside of Washington DC, is seeking exceptional candidates with an AMI diploma at the A to I level or Primary level (or in training!) to serve in a support role in our YCC program for the upcoming school year. We are seeking enthusiastic, collaborative applicants who are serious about Montessori education, promoting diversity, supporting inclusion, celebrating belonging and who have big hearts and fun-loving spirits!
Our school is small and sweet with one toddler classroom, two primary classrooms and one elementary classroom, with a total of about 65 students and 14 staff. We have an incredible staff who all love what they do and are well supported by administration and parents. We offer competitive salaries and generous benefits including: a great, top of the line health insurance which DRMS pays 80% of the premium; a retirement plan where DRMS matches up to 3% of your annual salary, DRMS provides short- and long-term disability and life insurance (at no expense to the employee); ten (10) days for personal time off; and several professional development opportunities sponsored by the school throughout the year. Every person on staff receives a professional development budget of up to $1500 per year.
Successful candidates will possess an AMI diploma (or be currently enrolled in an AMI training) at the A to I, Primary or Elementary level; be committed to learning and growing as an educator; have a strong desire to work in a community guided by respect for humanity; embody the values of the Montessori philosophy at all times; and display a team work ethic, a genuine desire to collaborate with others and possess a steadfast sense of professionalism.
