Montessori Lead Elementary Guide (Teacher)

Northern Virginia

Are you a passionate, Montessori trained teacher? Do you want to be part of a team of people working to grow the Montessori movement?

Join our team and lead your very own Elementary classroom in one of our beautiful campuses in Northern Virginia!

In this role, you'll create and lead a model classroom.  Through your efforts, parents will see what's possible for their child when authentic, high-quality Montessori is alive and well in the prepared environment.  You will be provided with a full set of high-quality materials from leading manufacturers, along with a classroom budget to make your classroom unique.    

We have an amazing team of AMI-trained Montessori Mentors who will be available to lead professional development, provide feedback, and help develop your skills even further. 

We offer competitive salaries, health, dental and vision insurance, as well as a generous tuition discount.  We also provide immigration assistance and visa sponsorship to guides coming to us from other countries. 

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.

Are you fresh out of training? 

Joining our team is an opportunity to learn directly from an experienced Lead Guide in a mentor/mentee capacity, giving you the rare opportunity to develop, practice, and refine your newly learned skills in a safe and nurturing environment. Work alongside our Mentor Guide until you are ready to branch out on your own! We also have a phenomenal team of experienced, AMI-trained mentors working on our central team, providing support to each of our elementary classrooms across the country.
