Are you looking to make a difference in education? Do you want to work at a school that helps each individual child grow and thrive?

We are now hiring for an Elementary Teacher at our Montessori school near Huntersville, North Carolina

You will lead a mixed-age lower elementary classroom for grades 1-3. Through your efforts, parents will see what's possible for their child when authentic, high-quality Montessori is alive and well in the prepared environment. A Montessori classroom supports every child to progress through an academically rigorous curriculum at the pace and with the support that is right for them.

We'd love to talk to you if you:  

  • Have experience with elementary age children
  • Have exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • Are looking to co-create a vibrant, thriving, loving school community
  • Are an experienced mentor, coach, or advisor of students who wants to help individual students explore their passions, overcome challenges, and surpass expectations
  • Are passionate about giving children the tools to be successful independently

We’re rooted in the Montessori tradition, which means we believe in an open-ended, free work period, where children choose what to work on and work at their own pace. We bring structure that through a coaching-based approach of helping children plan their own goals for the week and use us as adults as their guides and accountability partners to help them hold themselves accountable to their own choices and aspirations. We also recognize that when approaches like that go wrong, children don’t learn. So we’ve invested years in extensive curriculum development to ensure rich and comprehensive curriculum across mathematics, geometry, literature, grammar, biology, chemistry, physics, art appreciation, handwork, and more. And we have an accredited teacher training program to teach that curriculum to our “guides” along with the skill of running a classroom in a way that is at once fully individualized and fully engaged and productive. That training program will earn you a diploma that is recognized world-wide.

This approach takes work to learn, so you’ll need to come in with that attitude. But anything worth doing is worth working for, and the people who thrive with us are the ones who know that. It will pay off, both with a classroom that brings you pride, and a career that brings you a future, with a growing organization and all of the opportunities that offers.


What we offer: 

  • 75% tuition discount for two children at any school in our network (we serve children 3 months through 12th grade) 
  • 4 weeks of accrued flexible time off in your first year 
  • Benefits (health/dental/vision insurance) after 30 days

  • Career growth and promotion opportunities in our national network of supportive peers and mentors who regularly share best practices 
  • Employee Assistance Program - Support and guidance for everyday life from caring for an elderly family member to coping with anxiety or depression. Expert advice for work, life and your well-being through our MetLife - Employee Assistant Program (EAP) at no additional cost to you!
