About MDS:

The Montessori Day School of Brooklyn began in 1977 as a drop-in program for working families of the YWCA on Atlantic Avenue in downtown Brooklyn, where it operated until 2003, when the PTA formed a nonprofit organization to operate MDS as an independent school. In 2010, MDS moved from two locations (on Washington Avenue and out of Grace Church in Park Slope) to our current happy home at 237 Park Place. While we serve families from many parts of Brooklyn, MDS has become part of the fabric of our Prospect Heights neighborhood.

Our elementary program is truly unique: a mixed-aged Montessori community, with first through sixth graders learning alongside one another in a rich social environment. It continues the Montessori approach of practiced autonomy and self-mastery; of highly individualized lessons and extended periods of concentrated work. Within that framework, we embed a sequence of classical academic content in the humanities and the sciences. Learn more about our approach to elementary education here.

We are a private, non-profit school inspired by permaculture ethics of people care, earth care, and fair share. We opened in fall 2020 with one early childhood 3-6 class and one 6-9 elementary class.

6-12 Co-Teacher
Description of Position
Housed in a beautiful 1750s Dutch barn on a budding permaculture farm, Catskill Montessori School opened its doors in the fall of 2020.

We are a private, non-profit school inspired by permaculture ethics of people care, earth care, and fair share. We opened in fall 2020 with one early childhood 3-6 class and one 6-9 elementary class. Due to the level of interest, we are adding a new Montessori toddler community, an additional early childhood 3-6 class, and expanding our elementary program to include 6-12 for the fall of 2021.

We are seeking an elementary co-teacher to join our present 6-12 lead teacher.
Ideal candidates need to be MACTE-accredited with Montessori elementary experience. Farming, permaculture, or similar experience or interest is a big plus!

What we offer: competitive salary (commensurate with experience), health benefits, Montessori conference allowance, and tuition assistance for dependent children.

Catskill is equidistant from Boston and New York City (about two hours), with easy access to both. With many quaint towns nearby, including Hudson, with Amtrak service to NYC, Catskill offers the charm, culture, and environment of the farm and forest.

If you’re interested in joining our school community, please send over your resume and cover letter.

School Community
Catskill Montessori School is a private, non-profit school inspired by the permaculture ethics of people care, earth care, and fair share.

Our school is located in the town of Catskill, New York, bordering the Hudson River, with magnificent mountain views. Inside a beautifully restored 1700’s Dutch barn situated on 50 acres of forests, fields, and streams, we have two fully equipped Montessori classrooms.

In the Fall of 2020 we opened our doors serving early childhood (ages 3 to 6), and lower elementary (ages 6 to 9 years). During our second school year (2021 – 2022) we will expand to serve children ages 9 to 12 and, 1.5 – 3 (hopefully!).

We envision a place of learning for children where the indoor classroom and the outdoor environment complement one another, with Montessori education for children and adolescents from 18 months to 18 years old, in a unique and beautiful permaculture farm setting, drawing inspiration from the ephemeral beauty of nature.

Earth care, people care, and fair share, are permaculture ethics which guide the approach Catskill Montessori School has to being a part of the land. Montessori teaches children to become global citizens and stewards of the planet who recognize we are all part of a global community. Students will learn observation of and working in cooperation with nature, and to honor those skills as the legacy and heritage of indigenous people all over our planet

PCM’s stand-alone Kindergarten (K) program
“It is necessary that the human personality should be prepared for the unforeseen, not only for the conditions that can be anticipated by prudence and foresight…Adaptability – this is the most essential quality.” (Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence, p. 61)
At our very core PCM believes that ALL students deserve an education that meets them where they are, respects the learners’ capabilities and natural tendencies, and fosters their growth academically, social-emotionally, and in life-skills development. We fiercely advocate that high-fidelity PUBLIC Montessori is the most EQUITABLE option to achieve this goal. While funding for early childhood education is limited in many states, we do not believe this should be a barrier to accessing a high-quality Montessori education. Data supports that, even with a stand-alone K program, high-fidelity Montessori provides better long-term results for learners. Thus, PCM has poised itself with a stand-alone K that can easily be expanded to a full primary program when funding becomes available. We are optimistic this opportunity will present itself in the future! To ensure we can accommodate the breadth of needs presented by a stand-alone K, we have kept the student population in our classes low while maintaining the 1:1 Montessori Guide to Assistant ratio; we have hired a full-time Montessori Coach; we have expanded our classroom materials to ensure we have Montessori works to address all levels in the primary classroom and we have carefully integrated key pre-reading and reading resources to help those students entering with no experience. To start strong PCM has forged strategic partnerships, including with National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector, Public Montessori in Action and Teton Science School Place Network.

School Community
Colm Cille Club first began in the fall of 2010 as “Thursday Club,” when seven families interested in homeschooling joined together to hire a teacher to educate their (very!) young children once a week in an apartment in Riverdale. The following year, we met in two of the members’ homes, and began the first year of our memory work cycle (beginning with Year 2 as some members had already completed Year 1 on their own). By spring 2012, our membership had grown, and it became clear that meeting in homes was no longer sustainable. We found the space at St. Catharine’s in Pelham, NY to be a perfect fit for our group. With the
increased space, we were able to add in more classes to our memory work, art, music, and science classes. In the fall of 2013, we began our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and middle school programs, and in the fall of 2014, we started our theater program. Word has continued to spread throughout the area, and our membership has grown to include over 30 families and over 90 children ages 0 to 13. Over the past 5 years, we have continued to perfect our 3 year cycle of memory work and other programs as the marvelous mothers (and fathers!) in our group have contributed their talents and gifts. God has richly blessed our community as we’ve grown, and we pray He keeps us close to Him as we continue on this journey. St. Colm Cille, pray for us!

The Colm Cille Club is a classical, Catholic homeschooling cooperative.

CCC is not a full homeschooling curriculum. It is a small body of material we commit to learning together. We choose material we think is well-suited to the cultivation of wisdom and virtue by nourishing the soul on truth, goodness, and beauty.

On co-op day, we aim to provide experiences which are difficult to create at home. Children enjoy a fun and motivating environment for memorization, sing in a choir, and engage in hands-on art and science projects. Beginning in fourth grade, students are given writing assignments which can be returned to a teacher for feedback. They also participate in theatrical performances and book discussions.

Central to our co-op philosophy is nourishing our member families’ Catholic faith. Co-op day begins with mass every week. Beginning at age three, children begin their formal catechesis and enter the Joyful Child Atrium, a beautiful space designed specially to meet the spiritual needs of the child. Older students participate in the CatLab, where they learn from visiting priests and religious and engage in lively discussions about their faith.

We meet every Monday for a full day and offer an optional Thursday afternoon for drama and writing from September through May. We take off the month of January.

Professional and personable … serious and silly … meticulous and magical … inspired and inspiring.

If those four alliterative pairings fit you (and if you know the deep value of bringing your teachers chocolate at just the right moment), you might fit in pretty well at Greensboro Montessori School. We are seeking a passionate and skilled Montessori leader to join our crew and to fill a newly created administration role of director of lower school.

Pedagogical Pedigree

Our new director of lower school must have a deep commitment to and significant experience with Montessori philosophy. AMS credentialing and several years teaching experience in at least one of the Lower School divisions (Toddler, Primary, Lower Elementary) is a must. Additionally, they need to value and have direct experience with teaching to students’ different learning styles, being a champion for professional development, and building and maintaining strong parent partnerships.

Leadership Style

We seek a leader who believes in empowering faculty — in being a servant leader. We believe leadership is based on authenticity, humility, and connections, not power and control. We seek someone who is calm under pressure, who sees both the big picture and the hundreds of myriad details, who believes in our peace curriculum, and who finds joy in their work every day. Our new director of lower school will be equally confident supporting faculty as managing difficult parent conversations as getting down on the ground and giving a lesson to a student. We want to feel comfortable asking this person for help, knowing that we won’t be judged and that we may gain some practical tips or insights derived from your many past Montessori experiences.

Roles and Responsibilities

The director of lower school is a 12-month position and will be responsible for coordinating the 18-month to third grade curriculum and program, as well as the 20 to 25 faculty who teach within the divisions. Coordination will include internal and external communications, scheduling, parent partnership, student outcome and program assessment, bridge to the administration team, budget review, and being the face of our Lower School. Direct contact with students in various capacities will be part of the job, in addition to coaching and partnering with faculty and families. They will also support other members of administration, offering high-level oversight to our after-school and summer camp programs and working closely with our director of upper school.

Qualifications
Needed Skills and Experiences

– Proven school leadership experience.
– Montessori-aligned pedagogy and philosophy of learning.
– At least five years Montessori teaching in in a lower school environment (Toddler, Primary, Elementary).
– MACTE or AMS credential in at least one of the three lower school divisions (Infant & Toddler, Early Childhood, or Elementary I).
– Experience cultivating a professional adult learning culture.
– Strong spoken, digital, and written communication and interpersonal skills.
– Impeccable attention to detail and organization, especially in terms of managing student outcomes, check-lists, and spiraling vertical curricula.
– Flexibility and the ability to listen deeply.
– Master’s degree in a relevant field.
