Montessori Lead Elementary Guide (Teacher)

Vienna, Austria

We're now accepting applications for our growing elementary classroom for 2020!

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 at our new Vienna campus. 

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, healthcare, as well as a generous tuition discount. 

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 will start interviewing in early 2020, so if you are excited about this prospect of starting a new school with us apply today!
