Are you a Montessori leader with a thirst for social justice and an entrepreneurial drive in New Jersey?
Wildflower Schools: Primary Teacher Leader
An Invitation to Grow Wildflower Schools in North Jersey as a Founding Teacher Leader
Wildflower schools is committed to equity and unite intentionally diverse communities of children, families, and teachers in a shared pursuit of interconnectedness, justice, and peace. Our aim is to make the highest quality educational opportunities available to families with limited economic means, to strengthen families through parent education, to build community across racial and socioeconomic lines, and to shift public perception about the value of small schools, Montessori environments, and early childhood education.
What Will You Do?
As a Teacher Leader you will:
*Collaborate with one other teacher-leader to develop a vision for an authentic 1-2 classroom *Montessori school that serves the diversity of the local community.
*With the financial and operational support of the local and national Wildflower teams, find and prepare a school site – this generally involves identifying, leasing, and renovating shop front space
*Create a prepared Montessori environment in alignment with your vision and local regulations
*Actively market your school to recruit and enroll a racially and socioeconomically diverse mix of children and families
We are currently opening schools in the spring/fall of 2022 and are inviting Montessori trained Teacher Leaders who are interested in opening one classroom micro-schools in Essex/Passaic/Bergen/Hudson Counties. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity please send an email with your resume attached to Dr. Erika McDowell firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to meet you!
