Are you interested in learning more about the Montessori Method?
Are you looking for an entry level role in a great school while learning with us in a brave space with friendly, dedicated, and professional colleagues?
Then consider joining us at ToTH Montessori, a private Montessori program for children ages 18 months to 6 years old located in the Navy Yard neighborhood of Washington, DC. Voted Best Preschool in DC by Washington City Paper readers 5 years in a row.
ToTH Montessori is looking for a full-time floating teacher who will provide support for all three of our toddler and primary programs. No formal Montessori training is needed; just bring your willingness and desire to learn and practice Montessori values with us.
Our floater teacher will have a predictable Monday through Friday schedule working in classrooms as well as assisting our Head of School and Head of Administration with projects, and helping on the playground and during arrival / dismissal. This summer our floater teacher will provide substitute coverage for three of our teachers-in-training during six weeks in June and July. This will allow for the person to spend two full weeks in each classroom learning about our communities and school culture.
Ideal candidates will be flexible and adaptable and not mind each day being a little different than the last. Familiarity with the Montessori approach is preferred, but not required. We are looking for an individual who is energetic, curious, open-minded, and excited to dive into our classrooms. If you come with no experience, don’t worry, we’ll take care of that!
The Floater Teacher role is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door at ToTH Montessori. If you have been looking for the right opportunity to join our school community, this is a great entry level position with room for growth.
This is a full-time, salaried position with great benefits including breaks; health, dental, and vision insurance; 401K plan; life insurance; and professional development/training. Hours are currently 8:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday with one monthly staff meeting outside of school hours.
