Administrator / Full-Time

Cambridge Montessori School, Cambridge, MA

Cambridge Montessori School is in search of substitute teachers to work in Toddler, Primary, Elementary and Middle School classrooms. Previous classroom experience is desired, though not required. Course work and other experience will be considered.

We seek candidates with excellent interpersonal skills who can relate warmly and effectively with others to embody and convey the mission of the school. Candidates should be flexible, creative individuals who effectively plan and problem solve with a team. The ability to understand and work with a range of learning styles is required. A confident, professional demeanor and a sense of humor are important, as are strong writing, speaking and communication skills. An understanding of, respect for, and love of children is essential to work successfully in this child-centered environment.

Opportunities for substitutes vary weekly and there is often an immediate need should a teacher become ill. Flexibility is desired. A training will be provided and is required.

No phone calls please.


The ideal candidate will have previous classroom experience and/or relevant course work or other experience working with children in a professional setting.

CPR certification is required, and CMS requires any potential substitutes to submit a record of COVID vaccination.
