As a Mentor Montessori Teacher for Bezos Academy, you will support classrooms at a designated school within a network of high quality, tuition-free, Montessori-inspired preschools in underserved communities. You will bring a deep knowledge of Montessori educational principles and practices, as well as complementary early childhood philosophies and pedagogies. You will draw upon your prior history as a strong teacher of children and collaborator with colleagues. You will coach teachers to plan, prepare, and model instructional activities that facilitate active Montessori learning experiences. You will facilitate learning opportunities that support the cognitive, language, social, emotional, and physical development of every child. You share our passion for the Montessori method and have honed your skills as an early childhood practitioner with expertise in child development, strong communication skills, and experience working with students and families in low-income areas from diverse backgrounds. You will build relationships and communicate regularly with Lead Teachers and Assistant Teachers to support both teacher and child development.
In this role, you will support all classrooms in a school and report directly to the Head of School. While you will not guide your own classroom, you will have a variety of responsibilities including developing and coaching Lead and Assistant Teachers, teaching directly as needed (classroom coverage), and supporting the Head of School with operational responsibilities. Above all, you demonstrate passion for our mission to expand access to high quality preschool in underserved communities.
