The Primary Guide shares teaching responsibilities with another guide to oversee all aspects of a mixed-age Montessori classroom of 3- to 6-year-olds. They must know how to create and maintain a classroom culture which values respect, safety, and engaged learning. Main responsibilities include, but are not limited to, preparing and maintaining the environment, preparing didactic materials which are appropriately challenging and meet the needs of the learners, adapting the curriculum to the local context as necessary, recording student progress, making and recording student observations, leading circle-time activities, and meeting with caregivers. All of the Guide’s interactions with the students will be carried out 100% in Spanish.
All faculty at Upstone will be responsible for developing professional goals toward the end of improving their practice, outlining the steps that they’re going to take in order to attain them, and describing how they are going to measure whether or not they have attained them.
The ideal candidate will be highly organized and prepared yet can think on their feet and adapt to new situations; have the ability to notice, assess, and solve problems; have a good sense of when and when not to intervene for a child; have strong interpersonal skills, including the ability to build rapport with children and adults alike; have the ability to successfully navigate a cooperative team-teaching environment; able, or willing to learn, to use technology; able to contribute in a collaborative environment designed to meet the needs and interests of young children; and have a personal philosophy that aligns with that of Upstone.
