We are seeking a team leader for our Montessori unit (6–12-year-old students) within our state primary school. An exceptional teacher and a dynamic and progressive leader who will make positive contributions to our Montessori school. 

Start date: term 2, 2021 (negotiable)

Release time: 1 day per week for 2021. 

We are a future-focused school who pride ourselves on growing professional leaders at all levels. We have fantastic children, a supportive board of trustees and a wonderful community. Montessori education continues to grow in NZ and we currently make up 25% of the school’s roll.

Successful applicants will have:

  • The passion and desire to work outside of mainstream pedagogy, yet within the NZC 
  • Exemplary levels of practice and an excellent knowledge of the NZ Curriculum
  • The ability to consolidate and build on the strengths of our school community
  • Culturally responsive and inclusive practices
  • Interpersonal skills that promote trusting and professional relationships with staff and the community
  • A commitment to ongoing Learning and Teaching as Inquiry processes
  • A sense of humour and fun.

Previous Montessori experience preferred but is not a necessity, as professional development in the Montessori pedagogy will be an ongoing process.
