Guided by principles of Montessori education, the art teacher will provide art instruction for elementary-aged children and adolescents by planning and implementing age-appropriate lessons that introduce students in diverse and multicultural aspects of art (drawing, painting, needlework, crafts, clay, etc.), and by developing an integrated program of art appreciation that supports the school’s educational culture. This position is listed as part-time but may be adjusted to full-time depending upon an applicant’s qualifications and availability for after school enrichment.
Located within a half-mile of Boston city limits, Thacher Montessori School enjoys rich cultural and geographic diversity in a natural setting. It is situated between the 7,000-acre Blue Hills Reservation nature preserve and The Wakefield Estate, a 23-acre arboretum with livestock and specimen gardens. The school houses eleven classrooms that serve toddler-aged children through 8th grade adolescents. Each class is led by a full-time Montessori-trained guide and supported by a full-time assistant. Additional special subject teachers and support staff complete the program staff. Thacher Montessori School is AMS accredited for all ages and “Recognized” at the 0-3 and 3-6 levels by AMI.
