Discovery Montessori School
Our 2 early childhood classes continue on a school year schedule until June 17. One class has anticipated travel by each of the team teachers. One may be on an emergency trip for the rest of April. The other is on a planned trip for her family during most of May.Class meets 8:30-3:30 Monday to Friday. Teacher schedules are 7:45-3:45.
Our immediate need is for a classroom assistant who can fill in for either teacher. We would hope for someone with classroom experience and most of the Montessori teacher course as a foundation. We can consider a part time schedule on some days or a shared position as long as we can build some continuity. The other school staff can do some shifting of responsibilities to provide support of the class and of any new substitute.
SUMMER SESSION TEACHERS & SCHOOL ASSISTANTS
Our Summer Session will start June 20-July 1 – include summer staff planning from July 5-8 – and continue July 11 to August 19. We expect to rotate staff during part of the summer and include introduction of any new teachers for the 2016-2017 School year. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who seeks a school year position.
We continue one early childhood class with ongoing and new children, providing lessons to continue skills and also introductory experiences for the new children. Gardening is a part of our summer learning.
The other class in our summer session is our Summer K group of graduates. They meet with their own teacher in their own classroom and take their own outings. This is a transitional experience toward their departure to elementary school in the fall. The lead teacher and assistant would be working with these children at the upper level of Montessori early childhood materials and incorporating a broader experience in their curriculum.
OUR SCHOOL SETTING is in a church building with playground and garden on site and the public library across the street. We are on the #24 bus line and make several simple outings for walks and into Discovery Park. We provide a Happy Feet soccer experience for our summer children in the sports field across the alley.
Our school seeks to expand the cultural experience of children through a diverse and talented staff. We also offer supervision of internship for teachers pursuing a credential.
Please contact the school by email or phone to request an interview.
We thank you for your interest in our school,
