Pacific Rim International School (PRINTS) is seeking A-to-I AMI-trained guides or individuals who are currently taking the training to work with the 0 to 3 group. The guides should be native speakers of either Mandarin, Japanese, or English.

PRINTS is a unique, AMI-recognized, dual immersion Montessori school that offers two exciting and innovative tracks from the Nido to the Erdkinder: a Chinese-English program and a Japanese-English program. Each environment has trained adults working together, each speaking and teaching in his/her mother tongue. At the heart of our programs is a shared passion for culture in all its variegated aspects and a commitment to meaningful education.

Our two campuses are located on both sides of the bustling San Francisco Bay: in the vibrant community of Emeryville in the East Bay and sunny San Mateo, south of San Francisco. Our emphasis on multiculturalism reflects the trademark cosmopolitan aspect of the larger San Francisco community.
