Requirements / Qualifications

Requirements / Qualifications

All of our teachers hold dual credentials: a California teaching credential (with ELL authorization) and a Montessori credential. For the California teaching credential, we are looking for applicants who have their California Multiple Subject credential or who will be intern-eligible by July 1. While we prioritize applicants who are already Montessori trained, we realize that most applicants will need Montessori training after they are hired. HOW DO I GET MONTESSORI TRAINED? Montessori training is age based, with different training for ages 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, and 12-18. These trainings take between 1-2 years to complete, often taken concurrently while working as a teacher in a classroom. California Montessori Project (CMP) will pay the tuition of Montessori training for the ages/grades in a teacher's classroom. Since CMP pays for the tuition, the teacher won't receive the Montessori certificate stipend (that appears on the pay scale) until year five of working with CMP. Interested in learning more about Montessori? AMS has a short article on it here: https://amshq.org/About-Montessori/What-Is-Montessori WHAT DO I NEED IN MY APPLICATION? Please be sure to include the following in your application.

  • Certificate Copy (Copy of Montessori credential, if applicable)
  • Copy of Transcript
  • Credential Copy
  • Letter of Introduction
  • Letter(s) of Recommendation (Please include 3 recent letters of reference attesting to your professional attributes)
  • Resume
