Casa di Mir Montessori School, established in 1989, provides authentic Montessori education to students Pre-K to grade 8. Casa di Mir offers a well-rounded program that develops children’s enthusiasm for learning, as well as their resourcefulness and creativity. Casa di Mir has a dynamic Middle School program with established community partnerships, including farm and travel components. The Middle School program takes full advantage of the rich array of cultural offerings in the Bay Area. A well designed adolescent program with many opportunities for growth, the Casa di Mir Middle School seeks a committed and multi-talented teacher with a Math and Science focus to begin summer 2020.
The middle school teacher creates an environment that is conducive to the growth and development of adolescents (grades 7-8) in the realization of their fullest potential. We provide a unique opportunity to work with the adolescent from a holistic perspective focused on our small group of students throughout the day. There is room for creativity in bridging to other disciplines like micro-economy and technology. The middle school teacher must enjoy working with adolescents, have a deep understanding and respect for the child at this stage of development, and have the ability to challenge the active minds and bodies of the adolescent. The middle school teacher must be well grounded in a broad range of academic areas, have a well spring of energy, a good sense of humor, and be able to communicate effectively and set clear boundaries.
Note: The school is open to hiring one full time teacher (Math & Science) or one part time math and one part time science teacher.
