Mission Montessori

Founding Elementary Guide

San Francisco, CA

Mission Montessori is the first private elementary Montessori school in San Francisco opening on August 23rd! Our focus is on building a high quality Montessori elementary program that utilizes the wealth of resources and opportunities in this great city. We are looking for a Founding Elementary Guide who can lead our first class of lower elementary students and help shape our school. 

Our school is located in the Mission District of San Francisco, walking distance to Dolores Park, near the BART, close to the library and many other wonderful cultural destinations. We are fortunate to be located in a building with many facilities including a full kitchen, gym, dance studio, and more!

While we're a new school, all of our students come from other Montessori programs and are thrilled to have an opportunity to continue their Montessori education into the elementary years. We are starting with a lower elementary class and will grow the school through 8th grade. 


As a Founding Elementary Guide with Mission Montessori, you will be leading a mixed age lower elementary classroom. You will have the opportunity to design your classroom, filled with high quality materials, and your own classroom budget. We offer mentorship from other experienced Montessori elementary teachers, and a yearly budget for professional development of your choice. 

We also offer attentive administrative support, a very competitive salary and benefits including vacation, paid holidays, health insurance, and the opportunity to work with a team that is passionate about Montessori education.
