Come Join the Team!
Maria Montessori Academy is an independent school in Victoria offering dynamic, hands-on learning to students from Preschool to Grade 12. This is a community based school boasting low student/teacher ratios and an all-around excellent working environment.
We are currently seeking a BC certified High School teacher to join our senior school team from April 23rd, 2019 – June 2020 with possible extensions. Our High School is comprised of approximately 75 students taught by a dedicated team of 6 teachers.
Each of the teachers is responsible for supporting curriculum in all the core areas and each has a specialty area enabling them to facilitate the higher-level courses. In this case, we are seeking a candidate who can deliver Math 10,11, and 12; Entrepreneurship 12; and Personal World (Career Ed) 9/10.
While having Montessori experience is certainly an asset, it is not an expectation.
The successful candidate would join a team of educators passionate about providing a holistic learning experience for adolescents. It is an excellent opportunity to be part of a collaborative, responsive, and meaningful teaching team.
Desired qualities in a candidate are:
* Currently certified to teach in British Columbia
* Successful experience working with and understanding adolescents
* Experience with team-teaching and desire to be a part of the program beyond courses taught
* Excellent communication skills with both adolescents and adults
* Comfortable participating in our Outdoor Ed program – 3 strenuous overnight trips throughout the school year
* Being organized and reliable
* The desire to be creative in their planning and confident in implementing student centered lessons
