AMI PRIMARY & ELEMENTARY GUIDES Montessori Magnet - Hartford, Connecticut Take this opportunity to join our growing Montessori community dedicated to social reform in making Montessori education accessible to all children. Montessori Magnet seeks AMI Primary and Elementary guides dedicated to authentic Montessori practice in a public school setting.
At Montessori Magnet, educators individually guide children to learn at their own pace through hands-on work, exploration and discovery based on the child’s interests. Children emerge as independent, confident, compassionate, responsible, individuals becoming self-reliant leaders in their community.
We are a global community of students and families, drawing half of our students from Hartford and half from over twenty surrounding towns. We maintain a beautiful balance of races, ethnicities and socioeconomics.
Our staff are ‘pioneers’ boldly advancing Dr. Maria Montessori’s life’s work of child-centered education as a means to social reform. We are inspired by every day by the beauty and enthusiasm of our children and the nobility of our work. Our community of children, families and staff is a family that comes together often in work, recognition and celebration of the CHILD.
We offer excellent salaries, benefits, and opportunities for professional development. Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree and an AMI diploma, and must be eligible to receive a CT state teaching certification.
