We’re seeking:

  • An AMI trained, native Spanish speaker to bring Montessori curriculum, in Spanish, to children in all of our Elementary classrooms.
  • An AMI trained guide to align our robust Outings & Aftercare programs with Montessori principles, promoting social development and independence outside of the classroom.

Requirements:

  • AMI Elementary diploma, or current enrollment in such a training program

  • Commitment to engaging students according to AMI principles of development to create a joyful, engaging learning environment that ignites a love for nature & work, and nurtures wonder, gratitude, dignity, self-discipline and independence.
  • Ability and passion to nurture every child’s potential in an increasingly racially and culturally diverse community.

Entering our 39th year, we are a well established community of dedicated families and staff who strive to create a vibrant Montessori community from Primary through young adolescence. We’re located in a residential block between the dynamic and creative Ballard and Fremont neighborhoods, and our farm offers organic gardens, sheep, chickens, fruit & nut orchards, ponds, a creek, woodlands, a meadow, platform tents, community events, and more.
