A wonderful Montessori school in Manhattan is searching for an educated, experienced, and energetic Lead Teacher looking to have a positive effect on the minds of young children. This position requires substantial experience working with children age 24-36 months of age. Experience in a Montessori setting preferred. You must have completed a Bachelors degree, preferably in a related field. As the Lead, you will be asked to guide your assistants in best practices with this age group, model those practices, and lead all parent communications. You will work closely with the Head of School to evaluate student progress, support your teaching team and build the toddler program for future years. Teachers working with toddlers are often also working with parents who are new to parenting. Therefore, we ask the Lead Toddler Teacher to be someone with exceptional communication skills and a nurturing, supportive approach. Our goal is to guide and support parents through the journey of the 2s, helping them learn what their children are capable of and how they can best provide support to them along the way. One of the ways we achieve this is through electronic portfolios using an iPad. We ask every teacher to embrace this technology and this assessment method, and we provide extensive support and training for doing so.
