OakHaven Montessori School is seeking an AMI-trained Elementary Guide to grow a developing Upper Elementary class beginning August 2022. While a fully trained teacher is our preference, we will consider candidates who are still in training, or who are seeking to begin training in August, 2021. Training sponsorship opportunities are available as well.
In order to be successful in this position, outstanding interpersonal and communication skills (English required; other languages are a bonus), a growth mindset, and a collaborative approach to working with parents and colleagues are required. The ideal candidate will also be enthusiastic about the opportunity to develop a strong Upper Elementary program over the course of several years.
OakHaven is a relatively small school (approximately 70 children) with a strong community. The staff and parents are dedicated to providing authentic Montessori education to all of our students. As the only AMI-certified school in St. Charles County, we have served families from all over the area with different backgrounds, nationalities, and beliefs for the last 12 years. Our lovely four-acre campus with children’s gardens and park-like grounds provides the perfect environment to fulfill our mission.
We offer an extraordinary working environment, with supportive staff and a beautiful facility located in O’Fallon, MO. Competitive salary, great benefits, & the best students around are just a few reasons we believe OakHaven is a wonderful place to work.
O’Fallon, MO is a beautiful, family-friendly city located less than an hour west of St. Louis. O’Fallon has received many national awards and honors including, #1 “Most livable small city in the US,” #7 for “Best cities to raise a family in MO, and #24 for Money Magazine’s “Best Places to Live in America.” St. Louis also boasts a world-class symphony, a thriving, diverse local food culture, the best zoo in the country, the spectacular Forest Park (with its annual Shakespeare in the Park and other festivals), distinctive neighborhoods, vibrant arts, interesting architecture, and a grand baseball tradition. With the foothills of the Ozark mountains nearby, we also have a variety of challenging and beautiful hiking and biking trails.
