Position: Elementary Directress
Organization: Montessori School Oakwood Village
Location: Oakwood Village, Toronto, Ontario

Oakwood Village Montessori School is accepting resumes for an Elementary Directress commencing September 2018.

Candidates must hold an Elementary Montessori Diploma from a MACTE Accredited Training school in addition to their Ontario Teaching Certification.

The ideal candidate would demonstrate:

  • Knowledge of Montessori theory and the practice of the elementary level
  • Enjoys working with the elementary age children
  • Works well with co-teachers
  • Has strong communication and organizational skills
  • Is open minded and believes in holistic education

Montessori early childhood education is about maximizing a child’s natural ability to choose and perfect tools for learning, rather than filling them with pre-selected facts and coursework. Oakwood Village Montessori was conceived by Alex Tsamis and Nirmala Shettigar. With a shared passion for holistic education, they work in unison to bring forth the true virtues of Maria Montessori’s philosophy. Their complementary talents and experiences harmonize in a peaceful and collaborative learning environment.
