Your Role

We're looking for an enthusiastic, adaptable Teacher Assistant to support a mixed-age class of Infants, Toddlers, and preschool (ages 3-6) children in a Montessori environment.

In a Montessori environment, teachers (guides) carefully prepare an environment that fosters independence and captivates a child’s interest. Guides provide personalized support to each child. They offer individual and small-group lessons, showing children how to use the materials and perform activities with them, and giving them precise language to understand their experiences.

Because of the carefully prepared environment and individualized support, children in a Montessori class have tremendous liberty to explore the environment and work on materials of their choice for as long as they want. Most importantly, the support and materials help every child develop skills, confidence, and a firm conviction that they are capable.

We’re looking for an Assistant Teacher who will bring their best in order to support every child in reaching their highest potential!

  • Observe children closely to understand and best meet their needs
  • Prepare a beautiful, orderly environment that fosters independence and concentration
  • Provide individual and small-group lessons to support each child’s development
