Primary and Elementary Guides
Desert Sky Montessori, and Oregon Charter School in Bend, seeks Montessori-trained Primary and Elementary Guides to begin the 2017-18 school year.
Be a part of an exciting new Montessori charter school launching its first year this September as a fully-implemented, tuition-free Montessori program. The school will be located in the beautiful Central Oregon community of Bend, just minutes from mountains, rivers, climbing cliffs, and a myriad other recreational opportunities. Desert Sky will open its doors to about 75 5- through 9-year-old students and their families in its first year, and will add an age group each year through middle school.
Desert Sky Montessori is dedicated to providing a nurturing and inspiring environment for students and adults alike. The sponsoring Bend-LaPine School District and the Bend community are very supportive of the school. The school is adequately funded for its start up years, and the classrooms will be complete with beautiful Montessori materials and furnishings.
The successful candidate will have Montessori teaching certification, preferably from AMI or AMS, and teaching experience is preferred. Oregon State Licensure, or the ability to obtain this credential or the Oregon Charter School Registry, is required. Salary is commensurate with credentials and experience, and competitive with independent schools in the area. The compensation package includes professional development opportunities, medical insurance, paid days off, and eligibility to enroll in the Oregon PERS retirement fund.
