Foreign Language Teacher
Bay Farm Montessori Academy, Duxbury, MA
Bay Farm Montessori Academy is seeking a high-energy, creative Foreign Language teacher whose teaching style is compatible with the Montessori philosophy. The Language teacher will develop and implement a curriculum in the target language for ages 3 – 14.
The focus for students in pre-school is on receptive language. Students participate in oral lessons involving movement and songs to acquire vocabulary.
K-3 students experience a Montessori-inspired curriculum largely working at their own pace, developing useful receptive and expressive vocabulary, and are encouraged to apply their developing fluency in a wide range of applications.
Students in grades 4-8 perform various work applying their developing understanding of grammar and correct usage. The Language teacher guides learning experiences and encourages independence and self-motivation through small group lessons and a well-prepared environment.
Outside of teaching, additional duties may include lunch duty, after-school programming, mandatory training sessions, and all child care meetings.
Applicants must demonstrate fluency in the target language and a desire to create an outstanding foreign language learning experience for all. Applicants must be willing to obtain teacher certification with the EEC within one year of employment.
