Elementary Lead Guide (6-12 yrs)

Bovina Center Montessori School

Bovina Center,NY, usa

Come and join us at our 50-acre, farm-based Montessori school in the Northwestern Catskills of New York.

We are building an authentic, AMI Montessori school for ages 18 months – 18 years, on a permaculture farm in the beautiful hamlet of Bovina Center, NY. We have so far opened three classrooms in the new school, including an elementary classroom 6-12. Our hope is to split this classroom up into two separate classrooms (6-9 and 9-12).

The goal of the Bovina Center Montessori School is to:

Create a safe and nurturing atmosphere that promotes self-respect, respect for others, and the valuing of differences.

Create a challenging academic program at all levels and competencies that encourages students to be intellectually curious, to explore their creativity, and to get involved in the larger community in order to fulfill their potential.

Inspire a love of learning, through AMI-recognized programs

Help students acquire the tools necessary to learn and live independently.

Instill in our students the belief that each and every one of them has something important to contribute to the world.

Put emphasis on four core aspects that reflect our geographical region: nature conservation, the arts, sustainable farming/living, and entrepreneurship, through outdoor activities, work on the farm, and experiences in our beautiful natural surroundings.

We can offer:

A competitive salary (commensurate with experience), health benefits, paid vacation/holidays/sick time, Montessori conferences allowance, paid professional development, and tuition assistance for dependent children. Housing can be offered, if needed.

We are also happy to sponsor your AMI diploma training and will take students who are planning to, or have already begun training.

Please submit your cover letter and application to our Head of School, Sophie Wallas Rasmussen at
