As a Montessori Instructor at Bezos Academy, you will play a pivotal role in guiding adult learners through our Montessori Credential Program (MCP), a program in good standing for MACTE accreditation. Your coaching and Montessori expertise will shape the next generation of classroom teachers providing tuition-free, Montessori-inspired preschools in under-resourced communities. Your responsibilities include ensuring your adult learners have the content and practice opportunities needed to obtain their credential and become strong Montessori teachers. You will lead synchronous online classes—presenting lectures, demonstrations, and seminars—and manage asynchronous content.  You will evaluate adult learners' learning progress and work, providing timely feedback. You will also teach in-person during residencies, serving as a field consultant during learners' practicum experiences. Collaborating closely with other instructors and colleagues, you will ensure the highest quality Montessori teacher training.

To this role, you bring expertise in guiding aspiring Montessori teachers, combined with a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, which will be integral as you contribute to ongoing improvements in the Credential Program. You bring a commitment to continuing professional development, experience working with adult learners, and proficiency in utilizing online learning management systems to support a dispersed group of learners. Above all, you share our passion for expanding access to tuition-free, high-quality, Montessori-inspired preschools in under-resourced communities, supporting our readiness to scale to hundreds of schools across the country.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
