Guide or Assistant Guide for Homeschool Private Primary Classroom

Private home

New Canaan,CT, usa

Looking for a Covid Cautious Guide or Assistant Guide for a homeschool primary classroom.

Our two girls have attended Flatiron Montessori (AMI recognized) in NYC for 2 years and 1 year respectively (Ages 4.5 and 3). For the 2020 School year we are participating in the distance learning program at Flatiron NYC from our home in New Canaan, CT. This is an odd opportunity in that we are in strict quarantine away from the world and never going into retail, having all of our food delivered, etc, and we would like you to join us and our children for the year.

We have created a proper Montessori Classroom and have a separate apartment for you (or you and a spouse.) You would have the ability to leave the property but we would require a 5 day quarantine in your apartment here followed by a Covid PCR test before rejoining our bubble!

While the distance learning program at Flatiron is excellent, what we believe will be missing in distance learning is the ability to closely observe and guide the work in the classroom. Working with our Lead Guide remotely would create the invaluable feedback loop that we are currently missing. In this very different year, we are committed to fully investing in the girls Montessori experience.

It is potentially possible that we could work with Flatiron Montessori to make this work experience officially with an accredited school and be a valuable part of a resume.

Recent grads, students in the midst of their certification or a guide with deep experience are all encouraged to apply as we realize this is a special match we are looking for.
