Casa teacher

  • Employer: New Plymouth Montessori School
  • Location: New Plymouth, New Plymouth

What are your career aspirations? The best teacher you can be is when you find the closest match with your core values.

What can we offer you: We are a purpose-built, community-based Montessori school with a beautiful outdoor classroom and environment, all newly renovated. We are a strong Montessori community with four casa classrooms and a Montessori primary unit as part of a local state school. Our classrooms are all well-resourced and stocked. Each casa class is led by a Montessori trained teacher and supported by two assistant teachers.

There is opportunity to grow and develop with the position having the potential to develop into a Deputy Principal position with some dedicated non-contact time to support this role.

Our school has a strong focus on professional development (we offer all our teachers the opportunity to attend the MANZ conference when it is on the same island as us, we fund AMI head-teacher and assistant training as well as supporting other PD opportunities).
Are you looking to teach in an environment where a deep respect for children is fundamental? Do you believe in the importance of both peace and environmental education? If you see your role as a facilitator – introducing the world and its wonder to the children, nurturing within them a love of learning and a sense of themselves as capable, confident and independent; then we would love to talk to you.

What we are looking for: A passionate Montessori teacher with good leadership, communication and team skills. New Zealand Teacher Certification and AMI training preferred. Only applicants with a face to face training will be considered.

The position is available from June 2017 with some degree of flexibility.
