Interested in working in a mission-driven and joyful community that educates children with a simpler and more human approach? John XXIII Montessori Center is offering the opportunity to walk alongside 6 to 12-year-olds on their journey of self-discovery and learning so they can live joyfully in God's love and fulfill their unique call in life.
We are looking for a mature, assertive Montessori elementary assistant to accompany our Lead Elementary Guide during the 2023-2023 academic year in the areas of faith, academics, virtue, and play.
2023-2024 Academic year, late August - late May.
Tuesdays through Fridays
8:15 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Observation and knowing each child is vital to meeting children's needs, and you will have the opportunity to hone your observation skills to engage the children.
You will observe many lessons given by Lead Guide during the morning and afternoon work periods and assist children in their follow-up work and their choices to explore further what has been presented.
You will assist the Elementary Guide with record-keeping by observing children and noting their work.
During this vital period of learning healthy relationship dynamics, you will guide the children in the classroom and at lunch/recess as they discover and make mistakes in what it means to love your neighbor as yourself.
There are many needs of a Montessori classroom. With the direction of the Lead Elementary Guide, you will have the opportunity to do what is necessary to maintain a home-like environment for the children.
Located on 23 acres with woods, barns, open fields, and a pond in a small mountain town, the Center immerses our children in beauty inside and outside the classrooms. Passionate and devoted adults lead our Center, and we are blessed with open-hearted families who spend time together both at John XXIII and in the wider community.
Serving children and fellow adults in this life-giving community is a joy.
