After School Nanny ~ portland, OREGON, USA

POSTED ON JANUARY 31, 2016

Hello! We are looking for an after school nanny to pick up our almost 5 year old and our 4 month old from Tiny Revolution Montessori School beginning in March. The schedule would be 10 hours per week - from 3:30-6pm, Monday - Thursday. Tiny Revolution is near MLK and Tillamook, and we live on SE 46th Avenue between Stark and Belmont.

You must have experience taking care of two kids and previous infant care is required. We would love someone with a Montessori background and an appreciation for RIE principles. We try to create a certain amount of predictability for our kids while also allowing them to choose what they want to play, explore, and learn. We like to involve our oldest in house hold chores, and are encouraging him to embrace independence. He loves reading, math, building things with his magnet tiles and blocks, playing cards and boardgames, imaginative play, taking walks, and exploring outside. We are still getting to know our youngest but he is a smiler who loves books, music, fresh air, and watching his older brother.

Assistance with light housework such as unloading the dishwasher, getting a simple dinner started, putting in a load of laundry, or tidying the kitchen or play areas would be great. You will need your own car and a clean driving record.

We have previously participated in a nanny share and absolutely loved the experience! We are open to chatting about what works best for all parties and are happy to provide further details about our family and the schedule in person or over the phone.

Pay is $14 per hour. Please send a cover letter and a resume outlining your experience to Ashley Cartmel (ashleycartmel@gmail.com)

Lead, assistant, and special education teachers, and support positions ~ MEMPHIS, tennessee, USA

POSTED ON JANUARY 15, 2016

Libertas School of Memphis is a Montessori & liberal arts public charter school serving a high-need neighborhood in Memphis. Our mission is to be aschool for human flourishing: cultivating minds, hands, and hearts for lives of wonder, work, and love. We offer our students a rich, rigorous, and personalized education through Montessori learning, supported with rich liberal arts content through Core Knowledge, and the best practices of high-performing urban schools. And we are building an attachment village of supports between school, families, and our community. We opened in summer 2015 with 130 students age 3-7. We currently have six Montessori Primary classrooms. In 2016 we seek to expand Primary and open three Lower Elementary classes. We will expand up to age 12 in the coming years.

We are seeking applicants for lead, assistant, and special education teachers, and support positions. Passionate and knowledgeable teachers can dramatically improve the achievement of children subjected to educational inequality. At Libertas, we aim to make teaching about craftsmanship with sustainability. We have a steadfast commitment to the principles of Montessori and liberal arts learning, and at the same time are prudent in practice: "following the child," matching him or her with the beautiful and rigorous work of their own development. Features of how we support teachers:

  • Team teaching (Visit the “our team” page for more about the great team of educators you could join)
  • Professional development in Montessori pedagogy through our partnership with the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (See below or visit the Montessori Institute & Teacher Residency page of our website to learn more)
  • Weekly early-release for PD
  • Embedded observation, coaching, and leadership development

Summer Institute and Residency: quality Montessori teacher development
Our students need the strengths offered by teachers from both urban and Montessori backgrounds. Therefore Libertas has partnered with the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS) to develop a Montessori public school teacher Institute & Residency. In our founding year, the summer Institute ran for 5-6 weeks, and featured PD in Montessori pedagogy, child development, curriculum, and understanding the unique needs of our community. Through this year, residents participate in regular PD, observation, and feedback. We are currently refining and expanding the next phase of the Institute & Residency, along with external training partners, to support Lower Elementary as well as Primary for 2016. In addition, we are working to obtain a Montessori accreditation from MACTE and a public school teacher certification endorsement. The program would be valued at between $6,000 to $10,000, but Libertas sponsors that cost for teachers who commit to three years of service. During the summer, participants may be eligible for a stipend; during the year, residents (sometimes called "interns") are part- or full-time staff members with salary and benefits. 

Please see the Join Our Team page of www.LibertasMemphis.org for more details and to apply.
