Homeschool, Southampton

Teacher, Assistant

Primary (3-6)

Listed 19 August 2020

A Southampton, NY-based family is looking for a warm and energetic Montessori-certified Lead Guide (preferably AMI) and Assistant Guide to teach their son (age 2.7) in a group of about eight children (ages 3-5) in a bubble homeschool environment. Most children in this group would otherwise attend an AMI-certified preschool. The families are deeply committed to the Montessori pedagogy and in-person, device-free learning.

The Lead Guide will be responsible for selecting all materials for the "Casa", creating the environment, helping to vet and work with the Assistant Guide, etc.

Candidates for the Lead Guide should have extensive teaching experience in that role at a Montessori school. Assistant Guides can be recent graduates or in the middle of their certification. If needed, there will be additional support for the Guides (e.g. Spanish and movement instruction, etc.)

The school day will tentatively be Monday-Friday from 9am-12pm (with the possibility of "extended day" for the older children).

Generous salary with full benefits (health insurance, Paid Time Off). Housing can be provided if needed.

The children and Guides in this pod will not be required to wear masks. All families know each other well and are covid safe.

Initial round of interviews will be conducted by FaceTime or Zoom. A covid test will be required before an in-person teaching trial. The family is open to local and national candidates and will pay for all travel expenses.

Start date: September 2020

CANDIDATES MUST ALREADY BE AUTHORIZED TO WORK IN THE UNITED STATES. (The US government is not currently accepting work visa applications).

Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter to [email protected] or call +1-917-346-0320.
