Mountain Shadows Montessori School is seeking applications for classroom assistants.  (Young Child’s Community (1-3 year olds), Primary (3-6 year olds)), and Elementary (1st-6th).

We have an immediate opening for a long-term substitute in the Young Child’s Community. The position is effective immediately through July 29, 2016. We anticipate additional long term positions available beginning in August 2016 and the person who fulfills this role will have priority over external applicants.

Classroom assistants are responsible for the well-being of the children in the classroom as well as supporting the teacher with a variety of tasks. Some of these tasks include:  classroom organization, cleaning, playground supervision, Montessori material making, and more. The assistant is principally supporting the lead teacher rather than directly teaching children. This role requires someone who is responsible, detail oriented, and skilled with children in the classroom age group. In addition the classroom assistants support evening childcare during Parent Education Nights and other evening meetings at MSMS as well as Activity Days offered during Parent Teacher Conferences. Applicants for 1-3 year olds and 3-6 year olds MUST hold an Colorado Early Childhood Teacher certificate. No exceptions.

Mountain Shadows was founded in 1976 and is located in a beautiful, renovated farm house on over 12 acres of land in Boulder County. Our program supports children using the internationally accredited Montessori model distinct for its hands-on academic materials, individual and small group lessons, and emphasis on supporting the development of the whole child – academically, socially and emotionally.
