Creō Montessori School Exciting Opportunity For Elementary Montessori Guides

 

Creō = “Creativity”

The Creō Montessori School will open in the fall of 2014. It is being founded by a small group of committed Montessori parents who are working closely with Tim Seldin and the Montessori Foundation to develop a world-class Montessori school from the ground up.

Gilbert, Arizona is a town that flourishes as a forward-looking, family oriented community with a small town atmosphere. Gilbert has the resources to grow as a quality community. It is well educated and young families are finding in Gilbert a perfect place to raise their families.

They will open with early childhood and elementary, extending upward through the secondary level. We hope to reach an enrollment of 120 students ages 3 through 12 years old by the end of the 2014-2015 school year.

The school is affiliated with the International Montessori Council and the American Montessori Society.

The school is looking for a Montessori lead teacher with the right balance of charisma, patience, energy, vision, professional education, and effective communication skills. An AMI/AMS certificate, 4 year college degree and 3 years teaching Montesssori is a must.  Community building, and public relations skills that will ensure he or she will lead the Creō Montessori classroom.

We begin August 1, 2014, thus time is of the essence.
