We’re now hiring Montessori missionaries! Are you a passionate, Montessori-trained teacher? Are you a native Spanish-speaker? Do you want to be part of a team of people working to grow the Montessori movement? Join our team and lead your very own Spanish Immersion Montessori Children’s House classroom at our beautiful new Montessori school in the neighborhood of Wicker Park in Chicago, IL!

In this role, you'll have the opportunity to create and lead a brand new model classroom.

This classroom will be a full language immersion program. Both you and your assistant will speak with the children in Spanish all day!
