Lewis & Clark Montessori Charter School seeks a Montessori-trained Elementary Guide to lead an established Elementary classroom, beginning the fall of the 2018-19 school year.
Celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2018, Lewis & Clark is a Public Charter School serving children in the east Portland, Oregon Metropolitan area with a fully-implemented, tuition-free Montessori program. Located in the beautiful agricultural area of Damascus, just 30 minutes from both Portland and from Mt Hood, our robust Montessori program includes two Primary 3-6 year old classrooms, a Primary class for 5 year olds without prior Montessori, four Lower Elementary and four Upper Elementary classrooms. We also boast a lively 60-student Adolescent program for 7th & 8th grades.
LCMCS has a warm, positive staff culture that supports professional learning. School leadership is AMI Montessori-trained and has broad experience in both the classroom and in administration. There is additional Montessori-trained staff to assist learning through our Student Support Services team. The school’s sponsoring school district is highly supportive of the school, and classrooms have a full complement of Montessori materials and furnishings.
The ideal candidate has three or more years of Montessori Elementary experience and Oregon State Licensure, or the ability to obtain this credential or Oregon Charter School Registry. Salary is commensurate with credentials and experience, and competitive with schools in the area. The compensation package includes professional development opportunities, medical/dental insurance, paid days off, a wellness allowance, and eligibility for the Oregon PERS retirement pension plan.
